5.0 out of 5 stars Very unique stories and delightful style! 17 Oct. 2011
By Operafilly - Published on
Format: Hardcover
As an opera nut I already had his opera satires which were great fun. But these stories are far reaching into the tremendous variety of unexceptional humanity. Even the president of the US is an average, possibly less than average person. Ustinov's style of writing has a unique humour and some of the stories expanded my sense of humanity. His delightful satire never descends to sarcasm. An amazing fellow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ustinov has not yet removed the tongue from the cheek. 25 Sept. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I cannot get passed the word "delicious" to describe these puckish ramblings. What style, what use of the English language, and from a Russian no less? Oh what fun he had inventing those names for his multitude of characters. He writes as he looks - a twinkle in the eye and a boyish smile on the face. Bravo.
