New York on My Mind. Memoirs of a Displaced Person
The New Review Publishing. – 2015. 160 pp., ill.
This book is written by academician of the National Academy of Design, famous American artist Serge Hollerbach. During World War II, as a Russian teenager, he was sent to a work camp in Nazi Germany, and after the war he refused to return to the Soviet Union. He immigrated to the United States, where he went from being a worker at a tie-making factory to an academician and national award laureate.
He writes about exploring New York — its streets and boroughs, interesting people and events, about the “American portrait” of Osip Mandelstam; about Rudolf Nureyev, Mstislav Dobuzhunsky, and Greta Garbo; about famous actors and artists, as well as ordinary Americans.
The book is a distinctive story of the post-war and long-forgotten New York. Each story is an independent short work of art. His stories portray a brilliant sense of style, with the subtle humor of a real New Yorker. The book is illustrated with the artist’s drawings created during the last 65 years.
The New Review Publishing также предлагает мемуары С. Голлербаха, написанные на русском языке – «Нью-Йоркский блокнот» (2013). Это история забытого послевоенного русского Нью-Йорка, воспоминания о второй волне эмиграции, дипийцах, «перемещенных лицах», вынесенных волной истории на американский берег.
