A collection of stories relating the bleak stark, lives of immigrants from the former Soviet Union in Urban America. The dislocation between their current dreary lives and their aspirations is jarring. I read the French translation entitled "L'an prochain a Tbilissi" and the book may have lost something in translation, I found it difficult to get into the stories. These stories are often a sad portrait of those in search of a better life, finding things are so much more difficult in a country not your own, and there is a nostalgic longing for the home country, be it Russia or Georgia or another of the ex soviet states.
