Magical Chorus is a typical Volkov book very very intelligent very interesting but challenging to read Volkov s style as brought to us by his translator is deceptively simple but reuires multiple re reads to follow the narrative and recall all of the players he mentionsIn this particular demonstration of his style Volkov re tells 20th century Russia by a discussion of its cultural icons From Tolstoy through Russian Ark he shows the interaction between the highest elites of the Communist Party and the highest elites of the Soviet cultural sphere The key word here however is discussion Volkov relies on his own background in this area his own encounters with these characters to retell his story and his style is oftentimes that of an elderly neighbor musing over memories In addition Volkov s memory and mastery of detail means he weaves almost too easily between politics and culture dropping names right and left with little set up of them he clearly means this book only for those who are already masters of Russian cultureDespite these criticisms there s no doubt Volkov s work is one to keep on the shelf it is a much realistic and informative retelling of the 20th century culture than Figes Natasha s Dance
