“Riveting as a novel, concise as a poem, Stealing Cherries is a narrative picnic spread out like a painting by Manet.”
—Jill Hoffman, author of Mink Coat and Jilted
“Precisely chiseled blocks of soulful, funny, heart-rending fiction.”
—Ted Jonathan, author of Bones & Jokes
“Rubin will take you on a gritty but glamorous tour through New Delhi, Italy, Wall Street, the French Riviera, Grand Canyon, and Brooklyn. . . . And still, you will be the one who’s running to catch up with her wit, wisdom, and wondrously poetic narratives.”
—Michael Montlack, author of Cool Limbo
Whether she’s writing an engaging account of childhood memories from the Ukraine (“Otlichnitsa”), her family’s quixotic immigration experiences (“Welcome to America”), or current romantic misadventures (“Curious Things at the W Hotel”), with a unique voice and sharp eye for detail, award-winning author Marina Rubin reveals the triumphant absurdities of contemporary times. Her stories and characters are all too human, too familiar, too flawed, and just charming enough to be endearing and unforgettable in these poetic, bite-sized short stories.
Marina Rubin’s writing has appeared in more than seventy literary journals and magazines. Her family emigrated from the former Soviet Union seeking political asylum in 1989. She is an associate editor of Tribeca’s literary and art magazine Mudfish, and a 2013 recipient of COJECO’s Blueprint Fellowship. She resides in Brooklyn, New York.
