Other Worlds


Celebrated for the wit of her satirical sketches, Teffi was also a writer of uncommon sensitivity, capable of plumbing the darker aspects of human psychology while retaining the signature grace of her style. The stories collected here share spiritual and supernatural themes, drawing from the provincial Russia of Teffi’s youth to depict communities where Orthodox Christianity coexists with the shapeshifters and house spirits of ancient folk belief.
