Трагикомическая ситуация повести Александра Вельтмана «Неистовый Роланд» сразу же напомнит читателю сюжет гоголевского «Ревизора».

Тут и открывается вся отвратительная неприглядность жизни провинциального города – казнокрадство, беззаконие, невежество, дикая грубость. И стоило антрепренеру узнать бедного актера, как на Зарецкого обрушивается гнев местного общества во главе с городничим.

From the creative and well-­seasoned imagination of author, Ron Corcoran, comes the second volume in the Almost True Christmas Stories series. If you like colorful characters in fun-­filled stories that are close-­to-­true, mostly-­but not-­quite-­true, or darned-­near totally This second Volume is another collection of memorable holiday-­season adventures that inform, enlighten and entertain young and young-­at-­heart readers about what life was once like a hundred-­and-­forty years ago and what life could be like in the animal kingdom today. The author, a fun guy himself, intends his tales to challenge the imaginations of his readers with seemingly simple scenarios (some true) that lead to more challenging and engaging situations replete with unexpected complications. For example, learn what it was in the mid-­1800s that made lumberjacks’ pants “want to get up and dance.­” Or what’s the easiest way to make lunch out of an anthill?
