One More Year by Sana Krasikov

Every so often a new writer appears who is wiser than her years would suggest, whose flesh-and-blood characters embody more experience than a young writer could know. Sana Krasikov is one of those writers. Her first published story appeared in The New Yorker, her second in the Atlantic Monthly’s fiction issue.

One More Year is her debut collection, illuminating the lives of immigrants from across the terrain of a collapsed Soviet empire—people in search of love and the good life—forging new paths and sometimes retreading old ones. A man abandons Wall Street after eleven years to seek his fortune in his native Moscow, leaving his wife to make sense of this sudden reversal of their lives. A divorcée who boards with an older man finds herself an outsider among her more prosperous immigrant friends. A young wife from Central Asia struggles to break out of a polygamous marriage to a husband she still loves. A widow from Tbilisi, supporting her son from abroad, finds the boy a stranger when he visits her in Yonkers.
