"This intricate, thoughtful collection explores the inexorable complexities of relationships and religion. . . . Shrayer’s eight delicate stories trace his characters’ diverse struggles against the limits of tradition and culture."—Booklist

"Yom Kippur in Amsterdam follows the efforts of Russian Jewish immigrants to come to terms with their pasts as they try to build new lives in America. . . . [Shrayer’s] writing has qualities of humor, soulfulness and insight."—The Jewish Week

"Give another cheer for immigration, which has given us the unique voice of Maxim Shrayer. . . . A sense of longing suffuses all the stories. . . . the exquisitely precise vocabulary manages to locate these characters in the present."—Multi- Cultural Review
