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.
