“Sana Krasikov has a serious knack for writing characters so realistic you feel like you are watching them. What resonates most profoundly about One More Year are the ways in which the characters attempt to connect to one another, as they search for familiarity where it will not be found, and the familiar appears in the place where they never thought to look.”
-- J. Wells, The Elliott Bay Book Company, Seattle, WA


Description

One More Year is Sana Krasikov’s extraordinary debut collection, illuminating the lives of immigrants from across the terrain of a collapsed Soviet Empire. With novelistic scope, Krasikov captures the fates of people–in search of love and prosperity–making their way in a world whose rules have changed.




About the Author

Sana Krasikov’s debut short story collection, One More Year, released in 2008, first drew critical raves for its exploration of the lives of Russian and Georgian immigrants who had settled in the United States. It was later named a finalist for the 2009 PEN/Hemingway Award and The New York Public Library’s Young Lions Fiction Award, received a National Book Foundation's "5 under 35" Award, and won the 2009 Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature. In these stories, which appeared first in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, and other magazines, one catches a glimpse of the new genuinely twenty-first century moment that followed the collapse of the Soviet Union. Praised for its unforgettable characters and impeccably crafted prose, the collection went on to be translated into a dozen languages. The San Francisco Chronicle wrote: "There are stories you read, absorb and think you've forgotten until you re-encounter them - when the world they've created blooms again to full size in memory, like a sponge dropped into water. So it is with Sana Krasikov's stories." Krasikov was born in the Ukraine and grew up in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia and New York.
