February Book: A Backpack, a Bear, and Eight Crates of Vodka by LEV GOLINKIN

Category: Biography & Memoir | European World History

A compelling story of two intertwined journeys: a Jewish refugee family fleeing persecution and a young man seeking to reclaim a shattered past. In the twilight of the Cold War (the late 1980s), nine-year old Lev Golinkin and his family cross the Soviet border with only ten suitcases, $600, and the vague promise of help awaiting in Vienna.
