Thanks to Barbara Hoffert for including Elena Georgiou’s The Immigrant’s Refrigerator in her article, “The Art of the Short Story: 16 New Collections Reveal the Best of a Flourishing Genre,” at Library Journal.
A Lambda Literary Award–winning poet, Georgiou portrays immigrants to America, both legal and illegal, in heartfelt, no-nonsense prose. . . . It’s indeed brutally hard to imagine that kind of experience, but Georgiou brings it closer. VERDICT: A keen, sobering work; ten percent of profits will go to the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Center.
