Beautifully written short winter novel,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rock Crystal (NYBR Classics) (Paperback)
This is a story about children and dangerous adventure - a brother and sister get lost in the mountains at Christmas as it begins to snow. The language is simple and lovely, translated by Elizabeth Mayer and poet Marianne Moore. You can read it in a sitting.
I love lots of books by the publisher NYRB Classics. That's partly why I picked this one up.
