Ellen Litman - The Last Chicken in America: A Novel in Stories
Ellen Litman, poised and articulate, immigrated to the United States from Moscow in 1992.  In her delightful, wryly-humorous stories about Russian-Jewish immigrants and their struggle to assimilate in Pittsburgh, she clearly knows what she's talking about.  The twelve stories, featuring a stellar cast of characters, capture our imaginations and sympathy for the newly-arrived and often-confused travelers to our shores. Beautifully depicting the painful collision of cultures, religions, and generations in contemporary America, this collection is one to be treasured.  Litman's eye on the experiences of Russian-Jewish immigrants to America resonate whether it's Pittsburgh or Houston.  Her JCC Jewish Book and Arts Fair appearance is the perfect compliment to Houston Grand Opera's premier work, THE REFUGE, taking center stage on the following Saturday evening at the Wortham Theater.
