Vladimir's mustache : and other stories
From an Italian castrato who longs to sing for the tsar, to a Stalin-era method actor who learns the danger of losing himself in a role after he's cast as Hitler, to the men and women who meet through mail order bride agencies, all of the stories are told with a humor that's never far removed from an underlying sadness.
