Summary
"Love, talent, and magic oppose - and sometimes vanquish - anti-Semitism, totalitarianism, and vulgarity in this collection of new and selected stories by David Shrayer-Petrov." "From the deceptively simple narrative (Apple Cider Vinegar, Hurricane Bob) to the surrealist story (Dismemberers) and the magical tale (Jonah and Sarah and Lanskoy Road), the tempo fluctuates, but throughout, Shrayer-Petrov seamlessly preserves familiar voices. The stories have a genuine feel of the setting and epoch - the Russian stories work as narratives of everyday life, while the American stories offer an accurate sense of an emigre's alienation."--Jacket
