Michael Aleynikov

Sorrow’s Drive: A Quartet

“These four stunning novellas have an almost magical effect as Alenyikov masterfully weaves together disparate lives and universal themes into something approaching the sublime. He evokes the common goodness of people, as well as the common heartbreaking challenge that we all face and feel compelled to understand. Each story complements and clarifies the others in their exploration of family, of displacement and loneliness, of trying to find a way forward by looking back.”
—Trebor Healey, author of A Horse Named Sorrow
Aleynikov’s first book is the acclaimed Ivan and Misha. He has been a cab driver, a bookstore clerk, an interactive media writer, and a clinical psychologist.

The Glassmaker's Son: Looking for the World My Father Left Behind in Nazi Germany

A blend of lyrical memoir and sober history, The Glassmaker’s Son recounts Peter Kupfer’s decades-long quest to uncover the world his father left behind in Nazi Germany.

"A moving account of a son in search of his father and the home from which his family was expelled. Peter Kupfer’s compelling story leads deep into the abyss of a small Bavarian town during Nazi Germany and into the labyrinth of the human soul. Anyone who is interested in exploring their family roots and in reconciliation with a difficult past should read this book.” — Michael Brenner, International President of the Leo Baeck Institute for the Study of German-Jewish History

Peter Kupfer is a writer, editor and photographer whose articles have appeared in The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle.
