There Once Lived a Girl Who Seduced Her Sister's Husband, and He Hanged Himself

Seventeen 'love stories' from a world of shared apartments and heavy drinking in Russia, by an author whose work was suppressed for its controversial topics like domestic dissatisfaction and discord; a blend of dark fairytale and bracing realism; selected, translated, introduced by Anna Summers.
