Review by: PJ O'Brien on Feb. 22, 2015 :
This is another short and intriguing story by an emerging Russian author who is becoming one of my favorites. That's not simply because his short works are currently free on Smashwords, though they are. I've liked everything I've read from him so far. He has interesting ideas.

This is not a schmaltzy romance. It's about single-minded devotion. I was sure I knew its allegorical references, but was pleasantly surprised when I guessed wrong. But it inspired me to muse for the rest of the day, taking his original setting and plot and going off in my own directions.

It's my great hope that any of you out there with a talent for editing and literary translation will reach out to him somehow. I like much of his own translation into English, but he does need a little help to make sure he's getting the meaning he intended across. Please, any English majors out there, or any English teacher, or savvy English-speaking reader having the time and a talent for literary phrasing and an appreciation for the offbeat, please please please, reach out with tact and generosity and offer to help him polish it a bit. And if you're familiar with Russian literature, classic and new, or are fluent in it, so much the better.

I do like this writer very much.
