Since then her work has been translated throughout the world. Edna OBrien has called Tolstaya an enchantress. Anita Desai has spoken of her works richness and ardent life. Mixing heartbreak and humor, dizzying flights of fantasy and plunging descents to earth, Tolstaya is the natural successor in a great Russian literary lineage that includes Gogol, Yuri Olesha, Bulgakov, and Nabokov.White Walls is the most comprehensive collection of Tolstayas short fiction to be published in English so far.

It presents the contents of her two previous collections, On the Golden Porch and Sleepwalker in a Fog, along with several previously uncollected stories. Tolstaya writes of lonely children and lost love, of philosophers of the absurd and poets working as janitors, of angels and halfwits.

She shows how the extraordinary will suddenly erupt in the midst of ordinary life, as she explores the human condition with a matchless combination of unbound imagination and unapologetic sympathy.A New York Review Books OriginalTolstaya carves indelible people who roam the imagination long after the book is put down. --Time
