An Out-Of-Tune Piano, An Accordion by Andrukhovych
Powered by RedCircle
This week, Matt and Cameron get into something a little more modern with a short story from Ukrainian writer and translator Sophia Andrukhovych, “An Out-Of-Tune Piano, An Accordion.” Come join in as they debate the meaning of the fantasy or dream (or maybe terrifying reality?) of a woman named Viola as she stumbles upon a sort of danse macabre in the midst of worrying about her dying husband, Renat.
Major themes: Dreams, Cats = good/bad?, “Diseased predator”
02:04 - The White Chalk of Days
28:58 - A Curse on Dostoevsky
