View and listen to a reading of Jonah and Sarah at Boston College by David Shrayer-Petrov and Maxim D. Shrayer

"This collection retrospectively showcases about one-third of Shrayer-Petrov’s short fiction. Three of the stories deal with love and marriage between Jews and Gentiles. Others concern such topics as anti-Semitism, totalitarianism, love, and alienation. Powerfully inventive and haunting, these are works of stunning imagination from a profoundly gifted storyteller."—Booklist

"Shrayer-Petrov reminds us of the rich tradition of Russian literature. A brilliant writer now among us, he is worthy of continued attention."—The Providence Journal
