Strangely Lacking

There Once Lived a Woman Who Tried to Kill Her Neighbor's Baby - Ludmilla Petrushevskaya, Keith Gessen, Anna Summers

Dnf. Therefore no rating. Not sure if it was the translation, but I found these stories strangely lacking. I'm a huge fan of Angela Carter, whom Petrushevskyay is often compared to, yet Carter's short stories are visually rich and satisfying, and these, I'm afraid, were not.
