Fedor Sologub (1863-1927) was a Russian mystic and realist and one of the great novelists and short story writers of the Dostoyevsky school.
A favourite theme of his was reincarnation, which he uses very powerfully in his story
A Soothing Dream, which describes the last weeks of a dying boy's life.
What did you love best about A Soothing Dream?
the sweetness of brevity, the core subject-matter which is 'soothing' to me of finality and beginning.
Who was your favorite character and why?
the clay bird
What about Cathy Dobson’s performance did you like?
a voice in character to the story
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
rising on the third day and 2 angels
Any additional comments?
listen to greatness for the price of a cheeseburger.
