I am the author of 'Vasilisa', but my review is based solely on the other contributors' stories.
The story opens in 1963 when Lily begins a journal as she embarks on her journey to France in an effort to improve her French and experience a year of independence and learning abroad. Then suddenly, without warning, Lily's world is turned upside down and Wildgen takes her readers on a wild roller coaster ride. Not a ride like the old Zephyr in New Orleans -up and down and forward. No, more like the Magic Kingdom's Space Mountain - up, down, inverted, and in the dark with asteroids being hurled at you!
Interspersed throughout Lily's entries on her classes and outings are her keen observations of Romanesque and Gothic architecture and art, and her critiques of popular foreign films of the era. Wildgen is extremely knowledgeable about her subject matter, and she deftly brings her readers along with her to medieval France and 1960's Europe through her masterful descriptions.
If you loved Fractal (see my review if you haven't yet read it), you'll love Something Rich and Strange. Wildgen doesn't disappoint.
