This review is from: The Ballad of the Sad Café: Wunderkind; The Jockey; Madame Zilensky and the King of Finland; The Sojourner; A Domestic Dilemma; A Tree, A Rock, A Cloud (Penguin Modern Classics) (Paperback)All the stories in this book are good ..... they vary a bit in quality though. But 'The Ballad of the Sad Cafe' is absolutely wonderful; I would go so far as to say it was the best story I read last year. It's quirky and surprising and full of atmosphere. It conjured up very clear pictures for me, right from the first page. I can't recommend it highly enough.
