Críticas:

Ulinich is unflinchingly funny, sensitive, and a superb new talent. (Akhil Sharma, author of "An Obedient Father")

A dark irresistible comedy with an authentic Russian voice. (Martin Cruz Smith, author of "Gorky Park" and "Stalin's Ghost"

"Petropolis" is a real feast of sharp wit, quirky characters and amazing situations. (Lara Vapnyar, author of "Memoirs of a Muse" and "There Are Jews in My House")

A beautiful, far-ranging voice equally at home on both sides of the Atlantic...Anya Ulinich's satiric romp gives new meaning to the word ?bittersweet?. (Gary Shteyngart, author of "The Russian Debutante's Handbook" and "Absurdistan")

For a girl from a bleak Siberian town, Ulinich's protagonist Sasha Goldberg has a surprisingly big heart and a hysterical view of life in America. Petropolis is a compassionate and unusual novel about motherhood, immigration, and religious fanaticism. (Laura Dave, author of "London Is The Best City In America")

How did she do it? Anya Ulinich has written -- and in a second language, no less -- a smashing debut, at once a deeply moving coming-of-age odyssey and a globe-spanning satire of societies gone desperately and hilariously awry. I loved "Petropolis" for its bone-dry humor, eye-popping authenticity, and vividly realized characters. Most of all, I loved Sasha Goldberg. Through its darkest and most comic moments, this book made me very, very happy. (Katherine Shonk, author of "The Red Passport")

Audacious, clever, and lively . . . a nervy social satire in the spirit of Tom Wolfe, Aleksandar Hemon, Gish Jen, Gary Shteyngart, and Lara Vapnyar.
"Chicago Tribune"
Ulinich has a knack for the tragicomic. . . . "Petropolis" is engaging, funny, and genuinely moving in all the right places.
"Los Angeles Times Book Review"
A moving account of a perpetual outsiders desire to belong, both to her family and to the wide, weird world she encounters with a sometimes weary heart and plenty of chutzpah.
"USA Today"
A beautiful far-ranging voice equally at home on both sides of the Atlantic . . . Anya Ulinichs satiric romp gives new meaning to the word bittersweet.

Reseña del editor:

In her stunning debut novel, Anya Ulinich delivers a funny and unforgettable story of a Russian mail-order bride trying to find her place in America. After losing her father, her boyfriend, and her baby, Sasha Goldberg decides that getting herself to the United States is the surest path to deliverance. But she finds that life in Phoenix with her Red Lobster-loving fiance isn't much better than life in Siberia, and so she treks across America on a misadventure-filled search for her long- lost father. Petropolis is a deeply moving story about the unexpected connections that create a family and the faraway places that we end up calling home.
