The literary event of Halloween: a book of otherworldly power from Russia’s preeminent contemporary fiction writer
Vanishings and aparitions, nightmares and twists of fate, mysterious ailments and supernatural interventions haunt these stories by the Russian master Ludmilla Petrushevskaya, heir to the spellbinding tradition of Gogol and Poe. Blending the miraculous with the macabre, and leavened by a mischievous gallows humor, these bewitching tales are like nothing being written in Russia—or anywhere else in the world—today.
On her trip to the U.S. to promote her book, Ludmilla Petrushevskaya performed her cabaret act at the Russian Samovar in New York City. See video footage of her performance here.
