Sana Krasikov presents The Patriots
In conversation with Matthew Thomas

Ukranian native and National Book Foundation “Five Under 35” honoree Sana Krasikov follows up her PEN/Hemingway Award-winning story collection One More Year with her new novel The Patriots, a sweeping multigenerational debut novel about idealism, betrayal, and family secrets ranging from Brooklyn in the 1930s to Soviet Russia to post-Cold War America. The novel is at once a mother-son story and a tale of two countries bound in a dialectic dance; a love story and a spy story; a grand, old-fashioned epic and a contemporary novel of ideas. Through the history of one family moving back and forth between continents over three generations, The Patriots is a poignant tale of the power of love, the rewards and risks of friendship, and the secrets parents and children keep from one another. Krasikov discusses her work with Matthew Thomas, author of We Are Not Ourselves (a past Greenlight First Editions Club selection).
