Rezension: Praise for "Subtly Worded "(Pushkin)
The characters pop off the page with a flick of the pen. Teffi, used to writing for newspapers, turned out finely engraved sentences that achieved their effects economically. William Grimes, "The New York Times"
[Teffi] can write in more registers than you might think, and is capable of being heartbreaking as well as very funny. I wish she were still alive, and I could have met her. But then I realised she would have seen right through me. I can t recommend her strongly enough. Nicholas Lezard, "The Guardian"
These short stories of Russian peasants, artists and lovers show few signs of their age and much that is timeless. "Kirkus Reviews "
Teffi s wit, sometimes Saki-esque, is always evident, but her characters bullied servants, alcoholics, neglected children, aging peasants teeter on the edge of an abyss. Charlotte Moore, "The Spectator"
Witty, acerbic, playful and profound. Malcolm Forbes, Minneapolis" Star Tribune""

"I never imagined such a memoir could be possible, especially about the Russian Civil War. Teffi wears her wisdom lightly, observing farce and foible amid the looming tragedy, in this enthralling book" Antony Beevor
"Teffi demonstrates a profound sympathy for the ordinary people among whom she counts herself, swept along by cataclysmic events. While she sympathises with those who cannot help themselves, she is not afraid to look into the depths of what human beings can do to one another and what happens when civilisation breaks down." Virginia Rounding, "Financial Times
""The book is expertly and collectively translated by Robert Chandler, Elizabeth Chandler, Anne Marie Jackson and Irina Steinberg. It reads extremely easily and well in English and is furnished with an introduction, translators' afterword and copious notes to explain references and allusions now lost to time." William Boyd, "Sunday Times"
""Memories" is an astonishing work that, like Sholokhov s "Quiet Flows the Don," and for many of the same reasons, deserves to be turned into a film. It is both a thriller and an unforgettably personal account of one of the worst periods in Russian history." Catherine Brown, "Literary Review"
"[An] astonishingly vivid memoir...Wittily, wryly, wistfully, but never self-indulgently, Teffi tells the story of her escape from Moscow to Kiev to Odessa and onto a dodgy boat to cross the Black Sea as the country she loves is turned upside down in the aftermath of the Bolshevik revolution." Ysenda Maxtone Graham, "Country Life"
"A vividly idiosyncratic personal account of the disintegration - moral, political, strategic - of Tsarist Russia after the Revolution, as alive to the farcical and the ridiculous as it is to the tragic; a bit like what Chekhov might have written if he had lived to experience it." Michael Frayn
"

"Poignant reflections of a beloved Russian humorist as she fled her homeland on the eve of Bolshevik victory....Throughout, the author's characterizations are precise and even ruthless, and she captures the tense mood of paranoia and sorrow of the refugee. Fluently translated by several hands and introduced by Teffi's biographer, Edythe Haber, these are priceless anecdotes and beautiful portraits of friends and acquaintances lost forever." "Kirkus" (starred review)
The memoir ["Memories"] would be fascinating under any circumstances, but it has special poignancy now, when millions of Ukrainians have been displaced by a conflict that is half tragedy and half farce. Sophie Pinkham, "The New Yorker"

"Teffi is a courageous companion for anyone s life. Erica Wagner, "The New Statesman"
Speaking of brilliant writers, here s something from one of the 20th century s best....In this, remarkably the first English translation of her trek across a chaotic post-revolution Russia, [Teffi] sparkles with her usual wit and humanity, her Gogol-like love of the absurd matching her Chekhovian ear for dialogue she always finds the funny but never loses sight of the sadness. Awesome." Jane Graham, "The Big Issue"
"

Despite the backdrop of terror, war, death and loss, Teffi s world becomes somewhere we do not want to leave Teffi, somehow, makes some of the bleakest years of Russian history brighter; the country shrinks to the size of a village in which its occupants are a community, living, working together and helping each other." Claire Kohda Hazelton, The Guardian
"Poignant reflections of a beloved Russian humorist as she fled her homeland on the eve of Bolshevik victory....Throughout, the author's characterizations are precise and even ruthless, and she captures the tense mood of paranoia and sorrow of the refugee. Fluently translated by several hands and introduced by Teffi's biographer, Edythe Haber, these are priceless anecdotes and beautiful portraits of friends and acquaintances lost forever." Kirkus (starred review)
"This new translation . of [Teffi s] autobiographical work is a solid reintroduction to her charmingly Chekhovian voice it is that juxtaposition of the frightful and the comical that brings Teffi s work to its perfection .Readers who enjoy the acerbic and ironic tone of David Sedaris and the humane observations of Anton Chekhov should find themselves in familiar company with this work. Library Journal

A carefully constructed, imaginative, and richly poetic narrative. Maria Bloshteyn, Los Angeles Review of Books
The memoir [ Memories] would be fascinating under any circumstances, but it has special poignancy now, when millions of Ukrainians have been displaced by a conflict that is half tragedy and half farce. Sophie Pinkham, The New Yorker

With an unflinching eye for detail, whether noting the comedy of a fellow refugee s turn of phrase or the torture enacted on his prisoners by a sadistic colonel, Teffi paints a portrait of a unique historical moment that also resonates with contemporary horrors. Lucy Scholes, BBC
