Out Visiting and Back Home

Russian Stories on Aging
Thomas H. Hoisington

It is often said that America doesn't treat its elderly with the respect and compassion that other countries do. But how much do we really know about the status of old people around the world? Out Visiting and Back Home, a collection of Russian short stories on aging, helps to fill the gap.

Gathering short stories by ten well-known and highly regarded contemporary Russian authors, Out Visiting and Back Home, offers a wide-ranging portrait of aging and old age in Russia. From tales about the harsh realities of urban life, to portraits of intergenerational conflict, to the story of a young Jewish girl just entering puberty as her grandfather is dying, these are stories we can relate to and learn from.
