“Ida Tornovski was born into a politically divided Europe. Writing only in English now, she spends her time between the 'Old Country' and the United States.”
“In her short parody Intermezzo, A Short Love Story, Ida Tornovski takes you into 1965 spy-laced Vienna where three sexy adults role-play with fantasy, jealousy and betrayal. They call it Love.”
Would it seem strange to say what I liked the most about Intermezzo is that I’m still not sure what happened? I don’t mean what the narrator told me, but what she didn’t. The author’s description talks about role playing. But what is “play” and what goes beyond, isn’t clear. What is true and what is part of the act, is murky. Going in, who knew was supposed to happen and how does that compare to what actually did? I know, that’s all kind of vague. We don’t want any spoilers. I’ve got an opinion, but I’m still not sure. I wonder if you’d agree?
No significant issues.
