Boris Fishman - A Replacement Life ♦
Fishman’s accomplished debut novel puts a twist on both the classic immigrant story and the coming-of-age narrative when twenty-five-year old Slava, originally from Minsk and on track for a successful career in journalism, instead becomes the Forger of South Brooklyn, specializing in writing fake Holocaust restitution claims. Fishman’s is a wry, humorous tale of invention and self-reinvention, truth and falsehood, family and the American dream. (HarperCollins)
