How many of us with our parents or grandparents had written a book for us? The 64-year-old father of an adopted trio of Russian children {afes five, six, and eight} realizes he won't live much longer. In these letters, he tells his children about their lives in Russia--they have blocked out virtiually all memories. He also gives them the details of the Byzantine adoption process that brought them to the United States. He writes them what he thinks are some of the things they must know about Peterburg, their native city. And finally, he tells them about himself, his adventures and misadventures, answering questions that he thinks they might ask later, after he is gone. N° de ref. de la librería 062588

Reseña del editor:

A successful May-December couple adopt three tiny siblings from a Russian orphanage and embark upon an odyssey of hope, misstep and disaster American style, culminating in a broken marriage, a sick and destitute father, and the one gift he has left to bequeath to his beloved children. Held together with sly humor, insight and brutal honesty, the Old Man's letters to his kids are not mere stories, but works of art. A book to be read over and over again, and passed on to your OWN kids. Don't miss it. [T]he author's failing health leads him to tell his much-loved children about their adoption from Russia, about his world, his own childhood in St Paul, Minnesota and his unlikely but passionate attachment to all things Russian (to the point of earning a PhD in Russian literature). ....[A] fascinating story of a mid-century youth [that] makes a Midwestern boyhood seem as tough and alien as anything behind the Iron Curtain.
