Sinopsis:

From the deceptively simple narratives Apple Cider Vinegar and Hurricane Bob to the surrealist story Dismemberers and the magical tales Jonah and Sarah and Lanskoy Road, the tempo fluctuates, but throughout, David Shrayer-Petrov seamlessly preserves familiar voices. The stories have a genuine feel of the setting and epochthe Russian stories work as narratives of everyday life, while the American stories offer an accurate sense of an émigré's alienation.

Like all good works of fiction, these stories take on a mythic quality and transcend time and place. Each carries and communicates to the reader an aura of mystery, the enigma of love, and a meeting of Jewish past and present. Whether he invokes lyrical dialogue, gentle irony, or sharp polemical discourse, Shrayer-Petrov shows that he is a powerful presence in Russian and Jewish literature. For those interested in fiction about new immigrants to America or in the psychology of Jews in the two decades before the Soviet Union's collapse, this collection is a must read.

From the Publisher:

David Shrayer-Petrov's deeply moving short stories in "Jonah and Sarah: Jewish Stories of Russia and America" evoke art, love, and survival in Russia and in diaspora. After he declared his intention to emigrate in 1979, Shrayer-Petrov was unable to publish in the Soviet Union, and spent nine years as a refusenik before he moved to the U.S. This translation of his stories by his son, Maxim D. Shrayer, is an expression of family love and the power of literature to transcend time and culture.
