Quandary Resolution 1916
ventriloquism, abigeat, sea change, juju
Working in the absurdist tradition of Eugène Ionesco, the Russian émigré Vassily Bovin has been admired for his theatrical juju, but there has been a sea change of opinion about this playwright's “magical” talents since the release of his latest work, Abigeat, a meandering attempt at literary ventriloquism (and the author's first foray into the classic Western genre), in which we remain ever aware that the three protagonists, Olga, Leche, and Dairy Queen are not true characters mooing in their own independent voices, but mere puppets spouting the overblown anxieties of one Mr. Bovin, who counts abduction-by-cattle-rustler among his generative phobias.
