Overview

First published in Russia in 1992, The Time: Night is a darkly humorous depiction of the Soviet utopia's underbelly by one of the most brilliant stylists in contemporary Russian literature. Anna Andrianova is a trite poet and disastrous parent. Heading a household dominated by women, she can cling to the myth of the all-powerful yet suffering Russian matriarch. Challenging that myth is her headstrong daughter Alyona, a woman with appalling judgment and several illegitimate children, who both needs Anna and hates her.

One of, if not the, worst books I have ever read. The book reads like one long, fragmented run-on sentence, impossible to put together and therefore to understand clearly. It is a story about a common, everyday lunatic to be read and understood only by a lunatic of teh same wavelength.
