Your Neighbor’s First Novel: ‘A Replacement Life’ by Boris Fishman

Cooperator Boris Fishman has published his first novel — A Replacement Life — about an immigrant from Minsk whose complicated family relationships lead him to help Russian Jews in a scheme to defraud the German government of Holocaust-restitution claims.

The book received a juicy good review in the New York Times this week, and has been selected as a Summer 2014 Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers pick.

Boris has an upcoming reading Tuesday evening, 7pm, at the Barnes & Noble on 82nd and Broadway. (How about something closer to home, Boris?)
