Very Good Read
This wasn't the dark, mysterious novel I thought it might be when I read the title. But, the blurbs clued me in to that before I purchased.
I found Babayaga to be a light, humorous read about Russian witches who live for a Very Long Time. It is set in Paris in the 50's and the word "expat" is used to describe the two fellows from the American Midwest - one slightly disillusioned and the other goes with the flow with a cocktail in his hand.
One of the best aspects is the flea's eye view of the narrative... an irrepressibly jovial policeman is turned into a flea and he rides around on animals and people, full of optimism that is mildly threatened with despair over his situation.
I enjoyed every minute that I was reading this book. I very much recommend it.
