A collection of short stories which all are quick reads. I would characterize the stories as being tragic passion stories. They involve lust more than love, though the word loved is used a lot. Like the stories themselves the love/lust lasts only a very short time and often ends tragically. There are more than a few ways to experience death. At least in these stories it is very striking how little Russian Orthodoxy plays into the lives of the characters.
