A New York Times Book Review Editors Choice

All the characters in Evgenia Citkowitzs first collection of short fiction are connected by the quest for identity—some are poised at crossroads, while others teeter on the edge of a moral precipice. In “Leavers Events,” a teenage girl awaits exam results and has a sexual encounter with a teacher that she hopes will define her. In “Sundays Child,” a middle-aged actress evicts a homeless woman from her garden, precipitating a crisis of conscience. And in the title novella, “Ether,” a blocked writer plagiarizes his own life with devastating consequences. 

Unexpected and startlingly original, Citkowitz depicts her characters with a mordant humor and tenderness that never diminishes their complexity.

About the Author

Evgenia Citkowitz was born in New York and was educated in London and the United States. Her short stories have been published in various British magazines. Her screenplay The House in Paris, based on Elizabeth Bowens novel, is currently in development.

Short stories crafted in a traditional, never-mind-the-postmodern straightforward way. The novella deals with a writer who pushes too far in mining his own life for material. A great first collection.
