Collected Stories

"A New York Review Books Original" "Tolstaya carves indelible people who roam the imagination long after the book is put down." -"Time" The wonderful verve, unflagging verbal invention, and wicked charm that Tatyana Tolstaya brings to the short story have earned her a devoted audience all over the world. Edna O'Brien has called her "an enchantress." Anita Desai has spoken of her work's "richness and ardent life." Stemming from a Russian tradition of heartbreak and humor, mixing harsh realism and disconcerting fantasy with lyrical abandon, Tolstaya is the natural successor to the Bulgakov of "The Master and Margarita" and the Nabokov of "Pnin." In these pages we meet Denisov, who dreams of composing a treatise that will prove the metaphysical impossibility of Australia; Natasha, who searches not only Leningrad but her memory for a great love she knows she once had. Tolstaya's gift for characterization is unequaled, and again and again she shows how the extraordinary will suddenly erupt in the midst of ordinary life. This original collects the contents of Tolstaya's two previously published collections of short fiction, "On the Golden Porch" and "Sleepwalker in a Fog," together with new stories that appear here in English for the first time. It is a necessary introduction to the work of a thrilling and enduring proponent of the short story.
Portrait

Tatyana Tolstaya was born in Leningrad in 1951 to an aristocratic family that includes the writers Leo and Alexei Tolstoy. After completing a degree in classics at Leningrad State University, Tolstaya worked for several years at a Moscow publishing house. In the mid-1980s, she began publishing short stories in literary magazines and her first story collection established her as one of the foremost writers of the Gorbachev era. She spent much of the late Eighties and Nineties living in the United States and teaching at several universities. Known for her acerbic essays on contemporary Russian life, Tolstaya has also been the co-host of the Russian cultural interview television program School for Scandal. Both her novel, The Slynx and her collection of stories, White Walls, are published by NYRB Classics.
