Aetherial Worlds: Stories by Tatyana Tolstaya
Quite an mixed bag of stories. The most interesting stories are the ones where the author talks about her experiences, or observations of the world. I particularly liked her story about traveling in Crete. A lot of stories weren't that memorable but I still enjoyed this whole selection.
The write writes with passion, and humour. In the middle of stories she pivots with ease from on topic to another. I feel like I'm in a bar with her and she's regaling me with stories from her life. The stories feel very authentic. I love her Russian sense of humour and perspective in life.
