Piddler on the Hoof by S.I. Fishgal
The derisive living truth, escapades and sexcapades, eccentricity and idioms emotionally awake a preschooler in the Red Army's Rearguard during the WWII and trigger readers' thrills, laughter and bittersweet tears.
S.I. Fishgal could refer to hundreds of his publications in the USA, England, Canada, Russia and Ukraine, scandalous court files and the like WHO'S WHOs. As a gentleman, he does not. Readers sniff out anyhow -- a bit touched soul bares itself (souls have no sex) and spills the guts in this potent, rich, vivid, fascinating, stimulating and teasing novel.
