This is Shrayer-Petrov's seventeenth book and the twentieth in Syracuse University's Library of Modern Jewish Literature series. The author writes that these 13 stories bear testimony to 16 years of "setting roots in my new country." Almost half of the stories were written before 1987, when he and his family emigrated from the Soviet Union to the U.S. Spanning two decades of Jewish themes and characters, this collection retrospectively showcases about one-third of Shrayer-Petrov's short fiction. Three of the stories deal with love and marriage between Jews and Gentiles. Others concern such topics as anti-Semitism, totalitarianism, love, and alienation. Powerfully inventive and haunting, these are works of stunning imagination from a profoundly gifted storyteller. George Cohen

"A lively and artful set of stories. [Shrayer-Petrov's] sharp wit and deeply moving prose sweep us into ripping memories of a past awash with personal struggle against a fierce Soviet Union and through the strains and expectations of a new immigrant to America. . . Engaging insights, with colorful, unforgettable, characters. . . . A triumph."
