  • Book: Ivan and Misha
  • Location: New York City (NYC)
  • Author: MIchael Alenyikov



“Ivan and Misha” is the Great American Russian Novel told as Chekhov would tell it, in stories of delicacy, humanity, and insight. From Kiev to Manhattan, Brighton Beach, and Bellevue, Michael Alenyikov lays out a series of compelling arguments for brotherhood between brothers, between lovers, between men from an old country. Alenyikov confronts big subjects–illness and madness, sex and love in the age of AIDS, Old and New World Values, a fallen wall, the metaphysics of survival, the march of generations. –Carolyn Cooke, author of “The Bostons” and “Daughters of the Revolution”
