The Keeper of Antiuities Review ↠ 102 N novels and a key to understanding the terrible Stalinist purges of the. Recommended by a Russian pen pal for Dumbrovsky s writing and his telling of historical fiction I found this book impossible to put down Lyrical and detailed it transported me completely to Alma Ata Kazakhstan in the late 1930s on the eve of one of Stalin s terrors With a wry humor that if anything highlights the harsh absurdities of Soviet life the narrator tells a story of an archaeologist and writer working in the town s museum with wit and grace Highly recommended

I picked this up while out used book shopping for two reasons1 The blurb on the front states A splendid blend of situation comedy and Kafkaesue menace even though I do in fact hate the overuse of the term Kafkaesue and2 The comparison to Borges on the backNone of those things ended up being valid but I enjoyed this book in spite of thatThere are some funny moments in it but none of them would really be described as situation comedy they were of the black humor mildly absurdist bent you find in a lot of relatively modern Russian literature that focuses on the paranoia and suspicion that infuses the time around the various purgesThere is a lot to like in the book the museum keeperarchaeologist narrator is a stand out there is a fantastic thread throughout the book about the past and the present day interpretation of the past especially in light of propaganda and public re education the heroes of the past become guilty by their association with traitors who were not yet traitors the interactions with the head librarian really I could list for a while This was a thoroughly enjoyable read it took about 50 pages or so to get rolling but once it picked up speed I put mostly everything else ie work to the side to find the time needed to finish it A fun absorbing read
