Time Pieces is a beautiful telling of an old man's relationship to a city he met when life seemed quite new. The mundane glories--the evening's life upon brick, the wit of old storytellers--were miraculous to the boy, bathetic to the young man, and now treasured by the old author who strives to rediscover childlike wonder. More than just a memoir, it is a plaintive reflection on time. What is the past? Banville writes, "If the present is where we live, the past is where we dream."

It took me too long to take this book seriously because of the unique title, and I'm still mad at myself for taking so long to read it. This book expertly weaves together the stories of people from across  both time and the vast country of Russia. We meet a man working to censor pieces of art, a museum curator, a thug from a small Siberian town, an actress, and many others that all flawlessly form a larger picture of Russian culture and experiences.
