One More Year  by Sana Krasikov

One More Year
240 pages; Spiegel & Grau
They have extricated themselves from dead-end lives in their native Russia; now some of the emotional emigrès in Sana Krasikov's stunning debut collection of stories are in America, trapped in makeshift jobs or marriages, and waiting, always waiting, for redemption or love. One More Year (Spiegel & Grau) is an exploration of "an entire world transposed, like an ink blot on a folded map, from one continent onto another," an atlas of continental drift.
