No longer at home in Russia, but not quite assimilated into the American mainstream, the daily lives of Russian immigrants are fueled by a combustible mix of success and alienation. Simon Reznikov, the Boston-based immigrant has unresolved feelings about his Jewish (and American) present and his Russian (and Soviet) past. Three interconnected novellas gradually reveal many layers of the characters’ Russian, Jewish, and Soviet identities.
