A new voice
I have been waitng for a writer to come and give voice to the mass emigration of Jews from the former Soviet Union for more than 20 years- and here it is! Like Lara, I grew up in Moscow, in a Jewish fmaily, which belonged to the intelligentsia. Unlike Lara, I emigrated in 1979 at he age of 20, and have built a life in the US. At long last this, the unique subculture, history and experience of "my people" is being given a voice - a voice, which has great wit, lyricism, sensibility and great talent! Thank you, Lara

Exceptional!
Dear Lara, my only regret about the book is that it is too short! Please write more.
