Abstract or Summary
  • Vladena Aleksandra Dmitriev, in her collection of fiction and nonfiction The Mercurial: Stories and Essays, examines the conflicts inherent in language, whether in her own experiences as a non-English speaking immigrant from the Soviet Union to the submersed anger and resentment that emerges quietly in disintegrating relationships. What unites these pieces are ideas of emotional distance and inaccessibility, from a newly American child who incites her mother’s anger by unintentionally laughing at one of her linguistic mistakes, to a woman who purchases a telescope in order to look away from the instability of her own relationship. Dmitriev’s fiction and nonfiction pieces are about the nuances of language, the poignancy of small events, and, fundamentally, how difficult it is to be an ordinary person.
