      A collection of connected stories of Ukrainian DP's (displaced persons) living in a 1960's Chicago ghetto neighborhood. Luba Vovkovych tries to break free from her immigrant status and fit into the American way of life. She changes her name from Luba to Linda, wears white lipstick, and uses an army surplus bag for her school books. But she and the other characters are forever connected to their troubled Ukrainian history, sometimes via dark humor. When Monsignor Sachko declares that his parishio [...]

      An interesting collection of anecdotes about growing up in America as the first generation from post-war Ukrainian immigrants in an urban 1960's neighbourhood. Characters are colourful, and the stories are humorous, poignant, and sometimes quite powerful.

      A nice collection of short stories---revolving around the 1960s Ukrainian community in Chicago mostly populated by people displaced by World War II who immigrated to America---narrated by a young female coed at a local college who lives in the neighborhood and hangs out with her friends at a local bar. The stories are a bit uneven, though several were very nice, such as "Last Boat" and "The Celebrity." I liked the one about her car. The stories spoke to me because certain images came to mind, be [...]

      Luba, hoping to become more American herself, is determined to break free of her (Ukrainian) Post-war Displaced Persons status. In Chicago's Ukrainian village, she yearns for freedom and the ability to flee her stifling culture and the "old ways" of her parents.From the inside flap of the dustcover jacket: a bright new chapter to the classic story of how the children of America's melting pot grow up strong enough to carry their double identities.

      I really enjoyed these linked short stories about a girl growing up in Chicago's Ukrainian Village in the 1960s. It's a neighborhood I've visited a number of times, and her descriptions felt right even though the stories take place many years ago. Luba is a very likable character, and her glimpses of life in a DP community are funny and touching.

      I selected this book based on the protagonist's name, Luba, which was also my paternal grandmother's name, hoping to gain some insight into the mind of the first generation American.I closed the book wishing there were more chapters to absorb.

      The book is described as Luba’s journey of getting away from it’s Ukraine community in Chicago, and how she is happly unsuccessful in such attempt. In a way, I consider that Luba is a representation of the whole community: they are grateful to be in the US and are willing to accept/adapt to the ways of their new country. But deep inside they know that they will forever long for their Old Country, and that after being robed of so much, they will figth to keep their history and traditions aliv [...]
