Ulinich novel to be discussed The next Neighbors: Travel the World in Your Backyard Book Discussion will be Monday, Nov. 2 at 7:30 p.m. at the Glen Rock Library. “Petropolis” by Anya Ulinich will be discussed. Copies are at the library’s reference desk. This informal discussion group is a monthly discussion of interesting, stimulating and well written books that revolve around the immigrant experience in the United States. Ulinich’s Sasha Goldberg is the ultimate outsider from the Siberian town of Asbestos 2. Her father takes off for the United States, and leaves Sasha to navigate adolescence in a bleak apartment with her overbearing mother. Sasha falls in love with an art school drop-out who lives inside a concrete pipe in the town dump. Following her heart gets her into trouble at home, so she flees Russia as a mail-order bride and ends up in suburban Arizona. Sasha manages to escape her fiancé and embarks on a misadventure-filled journey across America in search of her father. Ulinich has crafted an unforgettable story of familial fault lines, cross-cultural confusion, and the allure of new beginnings. The Glen Rock Public Library is located at 315 Rock Road.
