The collected stories of Isaac Babel

Strewn with gems of language and stories to die for, this volume reveals the genius that was Babel, tragically extinguished in his prime by Stalin. - Where his left eye had been, a pink swelhng gaped repulsivdy in his charred face. Most are as short as Crossing into Poland. No iron can enter the human heart as chillingly as a full stop placed at the right time. Saunders approaches each of these stories technically yet accessibly, and through them explains how narrative functions; why we stay immersed in a story and why we resist it; and the bedrock virtues a writer must foster.

He's not as skilled a prose stylist as Chekhov or Maupassant, he's not as able to create mood via physical description, nor craft evocative passages. This compression is one of the reasons that The Collected Stories of Isaac stories stay in mind long after they've been read. Critics continue to ponder this question. Many a Virgm Mary studded with preaous stones followed us on our way with pupils pink like die eyes of mice The ffames ffuttcred m our fuigers, and rectnigular shadows wridied on the statues of St Paul, St Francis, St Vmcent, on fficir htde rosy checks, their curly beards The Collected Stories of Isaac up with carmme.

Babel's childhood stories have the quality of memoir, but are largely invented.
