|Availability:||In stock (2)|
This singular memoir from one of Ukraine’s new literary lights, Ruslana A. Westerlund, tracks her journey from a little girl toiling in the potato fields of the Soviet Union to the shiny, foreign new world of America.
From Borsch to Burgers elegantly and humorously captures Westerlund's gleeful and puzzling journey through new foods, customs, language, and love. Her message of cross-cultural discovery presents enlightening insights into understanding the nuances found in spanning two worlds. Her tale attempts to answer the questions asked by all people who have left their homeland to seek out a new life: “Who am I now?” and “Where do I fit in?”
