Fleeting Snow is a novella full of gentle reminiscences about a life shared, as the narrator looks back on a long marriage, and muses on issues ranging from human nature and the soul to given names and the phonetics of Slovak and indigenous languages. The subject of inexorable memory loss is dealt with in an informal, humorous style, and with a lightness of touch that belies the seriousness of the book’s themes.
