Um livro pequenino - pouco maior do que um baralho de cartas - que contém dois curiosos contos:

A Flor Pisada
Iura é um menino de seis anos que, por um acaso, assiste a um episódio revelador da infidelidade da mãe e, aterrado, tenta que o pai não descubra.

A vida de Lázaro depois de ressuscitado por Cristo; o Outro Lado que todos querem e não querem ver nos olhos de quem esteve três dias nas Trevas.

Destas histórias minorcas, retirei duas conclusões:
1) há que ter muito cuidado com os fedelhos,

The Crushed Flower summarized in the following:

Iura is a six year old boy, almost seven, which is not understood by his parents. He lives in his own world, clinging their dreams. At the same time, does not realize why his parents are always arguing. Iura was loved in a special way, which was not visible to his father's eyes.

The two last stories -- both novellas -- were the strongest: an enigmatic telling of Judas, and yet another of Andreyev's psychological prison tales.

So far I've read him in early 20thC translations, and I can't say I'm unhappy with them because his extraordinary writing manages to shine through. Even when his actual story concepts are fairly indifferent, as in a

Not the best collection of Russian literature short stories I have read! 2/10.

Mostly-okay collection of short stories (another free ebook). The one I liked best was a retelling of the betrayal of Jesus by Judas, even though most reviewers seem to hate it. Andreyev has a fixation on prisons/prisoners that extends to his creepy portrayal of the octopus-faced Judas, who is alternately malevolent and pathetic. He is too smart for the other disciples (who are mostly written as simple and good, which comes off a little condescending from Andreyev, who seems to favor the brillia ...more
