Lost - Varian Krylov Beautiful and pure.Lost is a phenomenally well done short story that tackles a taboo topic with such complexity socially and psychologically that it is natural and believable. Many times you read a pseudo-incest book and it is vacuous and titillating for it's own sake, but Krylov has taken the true taboo and presented it magnificently well. As one who generally avoids short stories because so few authors successfully master it, I was surprised by my own response. This book will appeal to a limited audience, but for those willing to explore it--I think they will be pleased.
