Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Though published a decade before the Bolshevik Revolution, The Tragic Menagerie possesses a sensibility that is modern in its descriptions of a childhood of passionate affections and unsettling revelations. This fictionalized autobiography follows the tomboyish Vera, who counts among her friends bears, wolves, and a wild crane, as well as local peasant girls.

Only when she returns to her natural world can her deeper compassionate and imaginative self emerge.
