Product Details

Praise

“Audacious, clever, and lively . . . a nervy social satire in the spirit of Tom Wolfe, Aleksandar Hemon, Gish Jen, Gary Shteyngart, and Lara Vapnyar.”
Chicago Tribune

“Ulinich has a knack for the tragicomic. . . . Petropolis is engaging, funny, and genuinely moving in all the right places.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review

“A moving account of a perpetual outsider’s desire to belong, both to her family and to the wide, weird world she encounters with a sometimes weary heart and plenty of chutzpah.”
USA Today

“A beautiful far-ranging voice equally at home on both sides of the Atlantic . . . Anya Ulinich’s satiric romp gives new meaning to the word ‘bittersweet.'”
-Gary Shteyngart, author of Absurdistan and The Russian Debutante’s Handbook
