In Red Blues, Dennis Shasha and Marina Shron have brought us a fascinating collection of personal stories told by those who are part of this last wave. Through their varied lifestyles and experiences, these immigrants tell of a common juxtaposition between life in the former Soviet Union, which was materially poor but often culturally and personally rich, with life in the United States, which can be comparatively chaotic and uncomfortable, but ultimately offers far greater opportunities.
The voices we hear come from a diverse group of personalities who tell their stories with no holds barred. The reader is given views of the United States and Russia from a very unusual perspective: the candid words of strong people who have survived in both cultures.
