One of the New Yorker’s 20 Under 40, David Bezmozgis is the author of Natasha and Other Stories, which won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize. In his first novel, The Free World, he examines the world of 1978 Rome through three generations of a family of Russian Jews. Debra Spark is a former NEA fellow and award-winning author of Coconuts for the Saint, The Ghost of Bridgetown and Good for the Jews. In her new book of stories, she blends the line between art and magic, from a Victorian toy theatre to a graphic novelist’s all-too-real creations.
