What Happened to Anna K. by Irina Reyn
Book Description"Literate and fun, What Happened to Anna K. is an uncommonly ambitious book and one of the year's most amusing reads" (People, People Pick, 4 out of 4 stars). Now in paperback, this modern-day retelling of one of literature's greatest novels has been hailed as a mesmerizing literary event, praised across the country for its voice, wisdom, ambition, and sheer storytelling flair. Vivacious thirty-seven-year-old Anna K. is comfortably married to Alex K., an older, prominent businessman in her tight-knit Russian immigrant community in Queens. But a longing for freedom is reignited in this bookish, overly romantic and imperious woman when she meets her beloved cousin Katia's boyfriend, an outsider and aspiring young writer on whom she pins her hopes for escape. As they begin a reckless affair, Anna launches into a tailspin that alienates her from her husband, family, and entire world. Touching on struggles of identity, fidelity, and community, What Happened to Anna K. is a remarkable re-imagining of the Anna Karenina story brought vividly to life by a "marvelous" (San Francisco Chronicle) young writer.
