I definitely preferred this one over Bronsky's debut novel, Broken Glass Park. Why? I like the fictional memoir approach to the story and I really, really like our snarky/sneering narrator,Rosalinda! Crazy, I know, especially given the character's rather disturbing cynical narcissistic personality - one reviewer has described Rosalinda as the "Tartar babushka from hell" - which should be an immediate turn off. Okay, she is not quite that bad - from hell, that is - but boy, does Rose have quite the interesting tunnel vision focus when it comes to her family and the world around her. Think Hyacinth Bucket (Keeping Up Appearances) meets Joan Crawford (Mommie Dearest) and you get the general idea. Thrown into the mix is a really fascinating portrayal of a Tartar who, on one hand, will do whatever it takes to fit into the Russian mold "to get ahead" while at the time, has an internal struggle about losing her Tartar roots. Rose has a lot of common sense ideas that, in principle, are jewels of wisdom so it is pretty easy to start to see things from her point of view (always a slippery slope!). It is Rose's determination to get out of Russia - the economy is collapsing after all - that we really get to see just how ruthless Rose can be. Of course, I am saddened at the state of the family dynamics but I love how each character - from down-trodden on the surface, mousy Sulfia to loud, energized Aminat - add life to what could have been a rather antagonistic story. End result: Bronsky proves once again that she has a gift for constructing compelling narrators. You don't have to like Rose to appreciate Bronsky's keen eye for observation and captivating wit. ( )

The highlight of Alina Bronsky's Hottest Dishes of the Tartar Cuisine is the book's first-person narrator, Rosa Achmetowna, a narcissistic battleaxe of a woman who thinks she knows what's best for everyone. The novel begins in the Soviet Union in 1978, where Bronsky offers some sharp insights into aspects of life before perestroika. I thought that portion of the book was the best: the book's humor and characters lost much of their energy when the action moved to Germany and time moved forward.

Ah Rosa... You are in every eastern European mother in different amounts. What a delightfully smart, sassy and funny woman you are. I absolutely adored this book and laughed out loud in many chapters. Rosa has to be the way she is.. You see her family is full of "no good for nothing" and "stupid". Her only hope is the Tartar granddaughter that has come to this world a little too early. I have also read Alina Bronsky's "broken glass park" and it was good too. Alina Bronsky (pseudonymous) is a Russian writer that lives in Germany. She is a medical school dropout and in her novels you can see that genius spark.. ( )

I really struggled on what to rate this book. (again I would like to have the option for 3.5 stars!). I'm rating it a 4 because I really couldn't put the book down. It was funny, bizarre and very readable. ( )

Rosalinda ist eine ältere Tatarin, die in Russland lebt. Mit ihrer Tochter Sulfia ist sie notorisch unzufrieden, als diese schwanger wird, versucht sie zudem auch das Kind abzutreiben. Dies gelingt ihr nicht und in der Folge entwickelt sie eine Affenliebe zu diesem Baby, Amniat. Ohne Skrupel entfremdet sie das Kind der Mutter, verhindert die Auswanderung der Familie nach Israel und schließlich gelingt ihr die gemeinsame Übersiedelung nach Deutschland.
Dass Aminat sie da schon längst nicht mehr liebt, da ihre Bedürfnisse nicht erkannt, ja sogar aufs ärgste missachtet werden, all das nimmt Rosa in Kauf- Hauptsache das Kind hat es einmal besser (v.a. materiell). Rosa denkt an Aufstieg durch Bildung: Aminat hingegen geht einen ganz andren Weg, der dem Westen entspricht, den Rosa nicht vorhersehen konnte und an dem sie keinen Anteil hat.
Dieses Buch kommt von der ganzen Aufmachung und dem Schreibstil her so locker wie ein Buch von Marina Lewycka daher. Aber in Wirklichkeit ist es eine ganz schauerliche Geschichte. Lesend schwankte ich zwischen absolutem Abscheu gegenüber Rosalinda und einem gewissen Verständnis, mitunter sogar ein ganz klein wenig Zuneigung. ( )
