Katya Katya Katya

I read Paul Greenberg’s first book Leav­ing Katya, after hear­ing an inter­view with Bruce Geller­man on WBUR, and I was so very pleased. The least I can do is rec­om­mend it to any­one who’s gone through a ‘Russ­ian phase’.

And, I sus­pect the author is a web-savvy guy, cause he found me, and sent me this e-mail:

Dear Ned,
Thought you might be inter­est­ed in these upcom­ing Leav­ing Katya events.

Best,
Paul Green­berg

Paul Green­berg will be doing a series of read­ings from his Russ­ian Amer­i­can love sto­ry LEAVING KATYA in the Boston area com­ing up in April. Car­olyn See in The Wash­ing­ton Post called LEAVING KATYA “A ter­ri­bly fun­ny nov­el.” The New York Times wrote that in LEAVING KATYA , “Green­berg, com­ic and know­ing, has done a rare thing supreme­ly well.” Bruce Geller­man of WBUR’s Here and Now said, “The writ­ing in LEAVING KATYA is rich, fun­ny and force­ful” while Vogue Mag­a­zine wrote “this tale will res­onate with any­one whose infat­u­a­tion with an exot­ic per­son or place has revealed dis­sat­is­fac­tions that lie a lit­tle clos­er to home.”

Exact details for the read­ings are as fol­lows:
