"In Stealing Cherries, Marina Rubin offers us a collection of precisely chiseled blocks of soulful, funny, heart-rending fiction."-Ted Jonathan, author of Bones & Jokes

"Part old-fashioned gal who begs airport security to allow through her dearly departed grandmother's eyebrow tweezers and part Sex in the City sophisticate who leaves another luxurious but disappointing dinner date dreaming of her cold chicken in the fridge, you will surprisingly find yourself somewhere in her stories. Rubin will take you on a gritty but glamorous tour through New Delhi, Italy, Wall Street, the French Riviera, Grand Canyon, and Brooklyn. . . . And still, you will be the one who's running to catch up with her wit, wisdom, and wondrously poetic narratives."-Michael Montlack, author of Cool Limbo

Whether she's writing an engaging account of childhood memories from the Ukraine ("Otlichnitsa"), her family's quixotic immigration experiences ("Welcome to America"), or current romantic misadventures ("Curious Things at the W Hotel"), with a unique voice and sharp eye for detail, award-winning author Marina Rubin reveals the triumphant absurdities of contemporary times. Her stories and characters are all too human, too familiar, too flawed, and just glamorous enough to be endearing and unforgettable in these poetic, bite-sized short stories.

Marina Rubin's writing has appeared in more than seventy literary journals and magazines. Her family emigrated from the former Soviet Union seeking political asylum in 1989. She is an associate editor of Tribeca's literary and art magazine, Mudfish and a 2013 recipient of COJECO's prestigious Blueprint Fellowship. She resides in Brooklyn, New York.
