Stories connected to the myth Baba Yaga describe a writer's journey to Bulgaria to find peace with her mother's fading memory; the true reason behind three friends' trip to a resort; and a folklorist's explanation of the myth.
February 16, 2010 Dubravka Ugresic's Baba Yaga Laid an Egg explores issues of women and aging through three modern retellings of the story of Baba Yaga, the villainous crone at the heart of many Eastern European folk tales.
