The first part of this book made me think about the other book I read by Babel (Red Cavalry) and I have to admit it was not my favorite. Instead later I liked the other part of the book, because it made me think about Isaac Bashevis Singer, who is one of my favorite author. Some of this stories are really sad and crude, but you have to know the author to appreciate his style, even if I'm sure I wouldn't recommend him to many person.

La prima parte di queste storie mi hanno ricordato l'altro libro che avevo letto di Babel (Armata Rossa) e non mi hanno fatto impazzire, ma il resto invece, era molto simile alle storie che racconta Singer, anche se piú crude e dure, e l'ho apprezzato molto di piú. Chiaramente Babel non é un autore per tutti, ma una volta che si apprezza lo stile é decisamente un autore russo sui generis.
