“Novostroïka” – The Atlantic

My story “Novostroïka” is in the December issue of The Atlantic. The story is part of a linked collection in progress.

You can find a copy of the issue at a bookstore or newsstand near you, or read “Novostroïka” online.

Update: I am happy to report that “Novostroïka” has been selected for The Best American Short Stories 2017. This year’s anthology is edited by Meg Wolitzer, and will be published in October.
