“Vaclav and Lena are both children of Russian immigrant families that have settled in contemporary Brooklyn. Seldom have the variables in immigrant experiences been written about so beautifully, resulting in a book that is both a charming love story and a dramatic page-turner. You will fall in love with both Vaclav and Lena five years old when we first meet them and 17 when Tanner's narrative ends. A wonderful debut!”
— Marian Nielsen, Orinda Books, Orinda, CA


Offering a new glimpse at the American immigrant experience, a stunningly gifted young novelist delivers a timeless love story set in New York's Russian migrant community.
