The Adventures of Vaclav the Magnificent and his lovely assistant Lena
`There comes a point in almost every relationship when you discuss the future. Where is this heading? Do you want to get married? Do you want to get married? Vaclav and Lena have had this talk. It has gone well. Vaclav and Lena are 10 ... [A] wonderful and wrenching debut novel ... Whimsical love stories are tough to pull off. But vibrant characters, believable romance and dark undertones make for a moving tale. The book's contrast between childhood fantasy and the grim world outside tamps down the cutesiness. It helps that Ms. Tanner is such a strong storyteller, and her distinctive voice - winsome without being dopey - engulfs you immediately ... There are two love stories in this book: the one between the boy and the girl, and the one between the mother and the son ... Many an author has relied on the redemptive power of love as the ultimate fixer. Too often its capacity to heal is taken for granted. Ms. Tanner reserves the abracadabra for Vaclav's routines. She shows what love can do and also what it cannot. But that's not to say that Ms. Tanner isn't a romantic. She offers a case of love so mighty that you believe that it will end up rescuing a traumatized young woman.' --New York Times `Vaclav and Lena meet as small children at an English class in Brooklyn. They have come from Russia during the aftermath of glasnost. At the age of 10 Vaclav has set his heart on becoming a famous magician and performing on the boardwalk at Coney Island, with Lena as his lovely assistant. He already knows that he will marry Lena some day. Tanner infuses their relationship with sunlight but never sentimentalises the immigrant experience. Vaclav's father is an architect who drives a cab and drinks vodka. The warmth in his house is generated by his mother, Rasia, who quietly feeds her son's little friend. Lena feels safe only with Vaclav and his family. Her parents are in Russia and she lives with her mostly absent aunt. One day Lena does not come to school and Vaclav spends the next seven years waiting for her. A uniquely charming first novel.' --Kate Saunders, The Times`Like all the best tricks, Hayley Tanner's novel leaves you wondering how it's done. [A] Brighton Beach ROMEO AND JULIET ... What lifts the book above the ordinary are the voices Tanner gives her characters: all youth's anxiety and hope brilliantly refracted through an uncertain second tongue. Funny, warm and smart - and with a peppery twist that suggests truth and love don't always sit easily - this is a magical summer read.' --Financial Times `Set in New York's Russian ?gr?ommunity, this is a quirky tale about two children from different worlds who are destined to be together. Amid dark revelations, the relationship between these vividly painted characters will stay with you.' --Easy Living `Not yet 30 years old herself, the Brooklyn-based author Haley Tanner has painted in this touching, sparsely written and powerful love story set in New York's Russian community, a vivid portrait of childhood and young adulthood that is likely to appeal to teenage readers and adults alike ... It's not often a book comes along that can leave you literally nodding in agreement with the clarity of its insights - but this one has to be a contender.' --Daily Mail --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
