The Supervisor of the Sea & Other Stories
Emil DraitserISBN: 1879378477;
Book DescriptionDraitser is best known for his short humorous stories and his collection of jokes entitled "Forbidden Laughter." "The Supervisor of the Sea" presents his longer and more serious stories in a sequence that moves from Russia to America to the fantastic beyond. Included is a deeply psychological "Faithful Masha," a story portraying the clash of Soviet and American cultures in the person of one visiting Soviet dignitary; "Wedding in Brighton Beach," a rapturous tribute to the color and passion of Russian emigre life; and "Zugzwang," an uncanny love story.
