There Once Lived a Girl Who Seduced Her Sister's Husband, and He Hanged Himself: Love Stories by Ludmila Petrushevskaya
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
The same problem I have with most books of short stories: they all just end up sounding very similar, and I finish each story thinking, "Well, that was okay, although I'm not really sure what the point was...."
This book also suffered from either poor translation or poorly paced writing . . . or both. I got about halfway through and then finally returned it to the library.
Can anyone recommend to me an enthralling collection of short stories? I keep being disappointed!
