Summary Gathering short stories by ten well-known and highly regarded contemporary Russian authors, this book offers a wide-ranging portrait of aging and old age in Russia. From tales about the harsh realities of urban life, to portraits of intergenerational conflict, to the story of a young Jewish girl just entering puberty as her grandfather is dying, these are stories we can relate to and learn from. Out Visiting and Back Home, a collection of first-rate fiction that expands our insight into old age, should be read not just by gerontologists, but by anyone interested in psychology, sociology, Slavic literature, comparative literature, and creative writing.
