This is a heartfelt multigenerational saga of great historic scope and even greater human depth. In summer, 1978, Brezhnev sits like a stone in the Kremlin, Israel and Egypt are inching toward peace, and in the bustling streets of Rome, Soviet Jews have appeared through a crack in the Iron Curtain. Among those landing in Italy to secure visas for new lives in the West are members of the Krasnansky family - 3 generations of Russian Jews. They will spend 6 months in Rome - their way station and purgatory. They immerse themselves in the carnival of emigration, in an Italy rife with love affairs and ruthless hustles, with dislocation and nostalgia, and with the promise and peril of a new life. Through this family, an intimate portrait of a tumultuous era is created with precise, musical prose. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
