The new adventures of Helen

by Liudmila Petrushevskaia | 16 November 2021
PAPERBACK
"One of Russia's best living writers . . . Her tales inhabit a borderline between this world and the next." -The New York Times At first glance, the stories in The New Adventures of Helen seems simple, even child-like, but a deep reading reveals satire and darkness manifested through classic fairy tale tropes characteristically upended by Petrushevskaya. These "adult fairy tales" ask deep questions about gender, love, history, memory, and the future, taking place in times between history and the now. These stories, quirky but yet inspired by a confident hopefulness, will inspire and provoke English-speaking readers across the globe.
