A Weird, Great, Giant Russian Novel About a School Run By Its Children

A Weird, Great, Giant Russian Novel About a School Run By Its Children October 25, 2021

I review Mariam Petrosyan’s The Gray House:

“… The House demands a reverent attitude. A sense of mystery. Respect and awe. It can accept you or not, shower you with gifts or rob you of everything you have, immerse you in a fairy tale or a nightmare. Kill you, make you old, give you wings.… It’s a powerful and fickle deity, and if there’s one thing it can’t stand, it’s being reduced to mere words. For that it exacts payment. Now, with you duly cautioned, we can continue.”
