Foreign Brides by Elena Lappin

Book Description

In the stories that comprise "Foreign Brides," women (and men) cope with marriage across cultures in London, New York, and a constellation of European and Israeli cities. Transplanted from one country to another, women like Israeli Nora, Russian Vera, and German Paula settle into lives of persistently unfamiliar if not utterly strange routines, lives that are stirred up from time to time with a very crooked stick. With perfect pitch and a poker face, Lappin has composed these insidiously funny tales about love and survival in an international no-man's land of marriage.

What Language Do I Dream in? by Elena Lappin What Language Do I Dream in?, Hardback (June 2016)

A moving and erudite memoir on the importance of language to who we are and an ode to the language that has given the author a home in exile.

Diary of Petr Ginz by Elena Lappin Diary of Petr Ginz, Paperback / softback (September 2008)

As a 14-year-old Jewish boy living in Prague in the early 1940s, Petr Ginz dutifully kept a diary that captured the increasingly precarious texture of daily life. His recently discovered diaries are an invaluable historical document and a testament to one remarkable child's hunger for life.
