Like Water and Other Stories

2019 INDIES Finalist
Finalist, Short Stories (Adult Fiction)

With settings that range from the Cuban Missile Crisis and Soviet era Perestroika to present day San Francisco, these are stories at once unsettling and tender, in which characters grapple with complicated legacies—of state, parentage, displacement, and identity. Anthony Marra calls LIKE WATER “a book of succinct abundance, dazzling in its particulars, expansive in its scope.” Karen E. Bender says Olga Zilberbourg is "a writer to read right now.”
