Summary (From the publisher):

First published in Europe in the 1930s and '40s, these searing, evocative stories by the late émigré writer Nina Berberova (1901-1993) are portraits of the lives of Russian exiles in Paris on the eve of World War II. The protagonists range from housekeepers and waiters to shabby-genteel aristocrats and intellectuals—but all are united in a haunting displacement from their pasts, and all share a troubling uncertainty about the future.
