    Anya Ulinich presents Lena Finkle's Magic 
Barrel, a graphic novel about dating, love, sex, immigration, motherhood, literature, and the meaning of life. "Lena Finkle's Magic Barrel has no antecedents, that it transcends its influences so thoroughly it creates a form, a language, all its own." - The Los Angeles Times

    "An honest and absorbing tragicomedy about love, sex, and everything that goes with them." - Publishers Weekly

    “Funny, painful, outrageous . . . Anya Ulinich is the David Sedaris of Russian-American cartoonists.” - Gary Shteyngart, author of Super Sad True Love Story and Little Failure

    Anya Ulinich grew up in Moscow, Russia, and immigrated to Arizona when she was seventeen. She holds a BFA from SAIC and an MFA in visual arts from the University of California, Davis. Her first novel, Petropolis (Viking, 2007) was translated into ten languages and named Best Book of 2007 by the Village Voice and the Christian Science Monitor. Ulinich was awarded the Goldberg Prize for Emerging Writers of Jewish Fiction and the National Book Foundation's "5 under 35" prize. Her graphic novel, Lena Finkle’s Magic Barrel, is available at the end of July. Ulinich’s short stories and essays have appeared in The New York Times, Zoetrope: All-Story, n+1, and PEN America Journal.
