At One Story, we like to toot our author’s horns. This week, we’re tooting for One Story author Irina Reyn, whose first novel, What Happened to Anna K was released today! In this re-telling of Tolstoy’s classic tragedy, Anna Karenina, Irina Reyn changes the setting to modern day New York City, within a community of Russian-Jewish immigrants. What Happened to Anna K is an Indie Next pick, and also an Amazon ‘Best of the Month’ pick. It’s been receiving amazing reviews, including this one from Publisher’s Weekly:
“Set among early 21st-century Russian Jewish immigrants in New York City, Reyn’s debut beautifully adapts Anna Karenina’s social melodrama for a decidedly different set of Russians. . . [her] sparkling insight into the Russian and Bukharan Jewish communities, and the mesmerizing intensity of her prose, make this debut a worthy remake.”
