The UnAmericans is a stunning debut work of fiction that exposes the deepest emotions that tie people together and break relationships apart through various twentieth century generations  and across a range of locales from the United States to Israel, Soviet Russia,
Hungary and the Ukraine.  Her characters inner lives frequently, subtly, brilliantly reveal their
social  and political  histories.

"These rich stories, in many ways reminiscent of the work of Grace Paley, are often sharply funny and always intelligent, and...immeidately appealing."  Library Journal

Beautiful, funny, fearless, exquisitely crafted, and truly novelistic in scope...It's clear we're in the hands of a master storyteller...with the emotional heft of Nicole Krauss, the intellectual depth of Saul Bellow, and the penetrating wit of Philip Roth."   - Jesmyn Ward, National Book Award-winning author of Salvage the Bones

Hounded by forces outside of their control, Antopol's characters struggle for relief in an   unsettling world. The author undertakes such provocative topics as religion, the collapse of communism, Soviet repression and the intimacy of family relationships.

"She is a writer of seismic talent...Not since Robert Stone has a writer so examined the nature of disillusionment and the ways in which newfound hope can crack the cement of failed dreams."  Adam Johnson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Orphan Master's Son  

Antopol says: "My stories move from McCarthy-era Los Angeles to modern-day Jerusalem to communist Prague. Many were inspired by my family history, notably their involvement in the Communist Party...and I grew up surrounded by tales of surveillance, tapped lines and dinnertime visits from the FBI...In terms of the Israeli stories, I've spent my entire adult life going back and forth between there and the U.S....I used to work for a Palestinian-Israeli human rights group, and at a youth village aiding immigrants from Chechnya, Ethiopia, and the former Soviet Union."

Molly Antopol was born in California and attended the University of California, Santa Cruz..
She received an MFA from Columbia University. A former Wallace Stegner Fellow, she is currently a lecturer at Stanford. In 2013 she received a "5 under 35" award from the National Book Foundation

Erica Bridgeman is a veteran KPFA Public Affairs Producer.
