The process of dying, which should be dramatically sad, turns into a party. Alik is visited by his ex-lovers, Jewish friends, the local Orthodox priest and an incredibly motley group.

      Sonechka : A Novella and Stories by Ludmila Ulitskaya (2005, Hardcover)

      It moves through Poland, Russia, Belorussia, Germany, America, Palestine, Israel, and the Vatican, so that in purely technical terms there were a lot of names and titles to be checked, a lot of scriptural quotations to be located and names of religious festivals to get right, but otherwise Ludmila writes elegant classical Russian prose which is a joy to translate. I hope the English-speaking world will find it as fascinating as it has proved to Russians and many other nationalities. An assortment of excerpts and stories in English and other languages, is available on the Elkost literary agency Web site.
