Praise For The Immigrant's Refrigerator…
- Aimee Liu, author of Flash House and Cloud Mountain
"The Immigrant's Refrigerator is a quietly devastating collection of stories about loners, craving love and connection, trying to survive in a world where war is always raging somewhere and happiness is a phantom of the future. That these loners are Americans as often as they are immigrants and refugees is this collection's greatest strength. Elena Georgiou's voice is quirky and surprising; her ability to turn a phrase upside down invites us to experience the world and ourselves in a new way. There are no easy answers in The Immigrant's Refrigerator; Georgiou's focus is on tipping a moment over the edge to find the broken pieces of our shared humanity. And yet, and still, it is a celebration of life in all of its scars and joys, chance and invention, awe and longing to be seen, and, over and over, a testament to the tender, transformative power of acceptance and love."
- Rahna Reiko Rizzuto, author of Hiroshima in the Morning and Why She Left Us
"Elena Georgiou is a dazzlingly good writer. The thirteen stories in The Immigrant's Refrigerator are stirring, wise, and keenly alert to the longings and contradictions that impel their beguiling characters. I loved this collection."
-John McManus, author of Fox Tooth Heart and Bitter Milk
