The landscapes, cities, kingdoms, magicians and merchants of fairy tales are as if the world of the Thousand and One Nights came to life again from the pen of the last century’s English writer.

Ljudmila Ulickaja - A lélek testéről – Libri

In Ljudmila Ulickaja’s new narratives, the ordinary and the inexplicable are inseparably intertwined.Its heroes are aging, lonely figures, who try to settle their conflicts before they die and are suspicious if they are given another chance in life. A wife who is only willing to eat apples after she is left, a mother who searches for a foreign husband in the park for her daughter, a draughtsman who finds new love in the last minute,a bibliographer whose words slowly fall out of his memory. Ulickaja draws their portraits with endless empathy and matchless insight into human nature, her stories comforting and disturbing at the same time.
