After having read the title story, I am delighted by Ulitzkaya's voice. The story covers years, and the tone is refreshingly ironic without being bitter. The two unlikely main characters, husband and wife, emerge from deprivation and trouble into a strange kind of happiness. The heroine reminds me of Checkov's The Darling- a woman so loving and foolish that no amount of rejection penetrates her nimbus. The heroine ends by taking her husband's mistress into her life like a daughter. It is very strange, but quite believable. I look forward to more of her work. ( )
