Last Chicken in America by Ellen Litman
Book DescriptionIn twelve "pristine, entrancing" (Booklist) linked stories, Ellen Litman introduces an unforgettable cast of Russian-Jewish immigrants trying to assimilate in a new world. Tender and wryly funny, these stories trace Masha's and her fellow immigrants' struggles to find a place in a new society-lonely seniors, families grappling with unemployment and depression, and young adults searching for love.
