The protagonists of Sana Krasikov's indelible stories are mostly women - some of them are new to America; some still live in the former Soviet Union, in Georgia or Russia; and some have returned to Russia to find a country they barely recognise and people they no longer understand. Mothers leave children behind; children abandon their parents. Almost all of them look to love to repair their lives, and when love isn't really there, they attempt to make do with a paler, lighter imitation of it, with substitutes for love.

'The debut of a major literary voice shaped by the literary traditions of both America and Russia.' Yiyun Li, Guardian Prize-winning author of A Thousand Years of Good Prayers 'A wonderfully wise collection.' Sunday Times 'What makes the collection so good is partly the fineness of detail - emotional as well as social and sensory. Krasikov's powers of observation are acute, and always admirably aligned with the larger dramatic aim of the stories.' James Lasdun 'Sana Krasikov articulates like no other writer today the agonies and triumphs of eastern Europeans who have come to America looking for a new life - Krasikov's clear eye and economy of expression convey whole lifetimes of grief and ambition in a few words. America needs more writers like her.' Guardian
