Yourcenar already shows great skill as a storyteller, and was also widely read, so although some of the stories feel straight from a children storybook, she evokes very well the characters, their passions and lives, and if her Balkans are not too close to reality, it is the fault of reality, as the stories are how things should have been. There are a few stories in the Far East, but most are in the Balkans and Greece. Indeed there is a common thread of melancholy that thickens as time passes, with one killing the hero of one of the previous ones.

Good if you take into account the period they were written but probably naive and predictable for our current sensitivities, I enjoyed also the evocative language. These beautiful short stories come from many continents and far flung origins including Japan, China, Greece, the Balkans, Turkey and others. All contain enigmas of one sort or another which give a pleasing slant on fairy tales mingled with elements of horror and most are laced with eroticism and sensual pleasures which usually lead to the downfall of some flawed human who could not resist the temptation laid before them.

Its an enticing mix of tales. All different and all magical. His old rust-coloured trousers barely reached his ankles, and his pointed anklebones, the tips of his heels, his long grazed, callused soles, his supple toes, all belonged to that race of intelligent feet, accustomed to the constant embrace of the air and the earth, hardened by the roughness of the stones, which in Mediterranean countries still allow a clothed man a little of the freedom of a man who is naked.

These were agile feet, so different from the awkward, heavy ones trapped inside northern footwear The faded blue of his shirt matched the tones of the sky bleached by the summer light; his shoulders and shoulder blades pierced through the tears in the cloth like lean rocks; his longish ears framed his head obliquely like the handles of a Greek vase; undoubtable traces of beauty could still be seen on his wan and vacant face, like the surfacing of an ancient broken statue in a wasteland.

A thousand thanks to Suna for sending me this tiny but wonderful book.
