IDA TORNOVSKI: Intermezzo – Interludes – Inter Galactica

1 Comment Book Reviews



Today I have the pleasure of introducing

Ida Tornovski


Ida was born into a politically divided Europe. Writing only in English now, she spends her time between the ‘old country’ and the United States.

Ida recently published four separate short parodies, three of which are bundled into a convenient box set.


I have read several of her works and hugely enjoyed them.

Intermezzo, A Short Love Story” is a very intriguing, mysterious and somewhat confusing short about a meeting between a man and a woman in 1965. This may be part of some odd role play, may be a meeting of spies or a case of mistaken identity. The author keeps us guessing, playing skilfully with our expectations.
Clever and very well written the story keeps the suspense until the very end when all is revealed.
A worthwhile read. Ida Tornovski is a writer to watch.

Interludes, A Short Lusty Satire” by Ida Tornovski is a selection of short stories about the narrators’ encounters with men – mostly unsatisfactory and short ones.
With great sense of humour that thankfully owes more to irony than sarcasm the stories are presented with wit and in a very light hearted tone. Although it can show the male in its worst bad habits the book remains funny throughout.
The author’s great and witty command of the language makes this an easy yet intelligent read, full of plays on words, original metaphors and inventive descriptions.
The analogy to musical interludes helps to keep the playful character of the book up. The book ended too soon, I could have done with a few more witticisms and laughs. Here is to the next book


The latest, Inter-Galactica, An Otherworldly Brief Romance, will be Free on all Amazon sites – Saturday and Sunday, November 16 & 17.

 “Inter-Galactica: An Otherworldly Brief Romance” by Ida Tornovski is a very entertaining short fantasy story about the brief encounter between a single ‘spinster’ woman and a mysterious alien male.
Who would not consider a romantic liaison with a charismatic mystery man who looks like a superstar, even if he comes from a different planet?
Told in dry wit and with charm this is a very original and understated, lovely and very enjoyable story. I hope there is more to come from this talented new voice

    Many thanks for introducing me and my short spoofs on life, lust and love to your friends. You told me that you got a chuckle out of the stories, and so I hope some others might do the same.
