Olga Grushin Ñ 4 characters review ë PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ñ Olga Grushin Free download The Dream Life of Sukhanov D comforts of a high ranking Soviet apparatchik Once he created art; now he censors it His past is a shadow repressed to the point of nonexistence But a series of increasingly bizarre events transforms his perfect world into a nightmare Buried dreams return to haunt him his life begins to unravel new political alignments in the Kremlin. He has a realization Something was happening to him something strange something in fact extremely unsettling something that he was unable to explain much less stop or control He was being assailed by his pastAnatoly Sukhanov is a man with a past he has edited a past that now haunts him as those edited parts suddenly make themselves known in both his dreams and his waking hours Just what is it that Sukhanov has suppressed all these years and that at the age of 56 now has him inhabiting a different plane of reality than those around him Why do his dissatisfied wife and children and his estranged associates look at him differently now And what about his cousin whom he can t remember a man who comes out of nowhere and is now turning his life upside down when coming to live with him and his family What else does the cousin want besides room and board Read this book and you ll know bit by bit what Sukhanov has kept hidden from himself and why You ll also learn a lot about art in Russia during the mid twentieth century in which innovative artists seeking self expression through their work were forced underground or worse for the greater good Sukhanov was one of those underground artists but he now writes articles for a Russian magazine that criticizes free expression and extolls the virtues of conformity so the common people will strive to be productive citizens not have flights of fantasy about freedom promoted by surrealism and other subversive movements Though times are changing as is Sukhanov But are they changing for better or for worse And will he bend with them or break Before he knew it he was staggering through the uncharted territory of the basement criss crossed with low ceilinged cramped poorly lit corridors The smells of cabbage stew and detergent cling to walls the color of sickness an ill looking striped cat slunk past him its invisible tail bristling shapeless objects cringed in the corners briefly suggesting rags pails brooms a rolled up poster a three legged chair a doll with a missing arm then sinking back into the shadowsAfter the sparkling expanse of the lobby the buildings faintly unclean unsavory underside jarred his senses and he felt a dull oppression descending on him as if all nine stories of human existence above were weighing heavily on his spiritSukhanov is a man in trouble something the writing in this book makes very clear It is an hallucinogenic marvel and one of the best parts of this book as I never connected much with the characters Many of the scenes were as surreal as the paintings by Dali that Sukhanov scoffed at But it was never too much just surreal enough to unsettle the reader as the author seamlessly blended reality into fantasy fantasy into dreams dreams into reality then back again all of them melting together and dripping languidly off the page like the clocks in Dali s most famous painting This caught me off guard and kept me on edge throughout the entire story as I wasn t sure if what I was reading was truly happening or not since not even Sukhanov knew But this story is much than a literary illusionary magic trick It s about selective amnesia and survival It s about sacrifice and irony the purpose of art the power of the conscience It s about following one s dreams and living through other people s dreams and The list goes on and on the story perfect for any book club with an ending that begs to be interpreted and compared within a group Thanks again to my book club for giving me the chance to read an author new to me and a book I d never have discovered on my own
