    Одесские рассказы eBook à å PDF/EPUB chickenshedcafe.uk Одесские book, рассказы pdf, Одесские рассказы PDFThis collection of short stories about life among Jewish traders workers and robbers in early 20th century Odessa leading up to the revolution almost packs the same punch as Red Cavalry That's high praise Yes it's a bit uneven but the best stories here are astounding switching from jovial tales of childhood that never forget the darkness underneath to brutally violent stories of antisemitism and crime all with a language that wants to sueeze out evey possibility carbonated with a dark sense of humourTake The Story of My Dovecot for instance which starts out as a hopeful story about how the narrator has saved for years to buy the pigeons he wants to raise then suddenly out of nowhere the bright market day careens into bloody surrealism My world was tiny and it was awful I closed my eyes so as not to see it and pressed myself tight
