Captivating With An Easy Sense of Familiarity

In The Sun and other Stars, author Brigid Pasulka crafts a story of family and community that will captivate you with an easy sense of familiarity. Pasulka, an English teacher in Chicago, understands and embraces the familial conflicts and intergenerational obligations that shape our personal growth. She has lived in Russia, Germany, Italy, and Poland, where she went in search of her own heritage.

In this story, twenty-two year old Etto is in unfathomable grief after losing his mother and twin brother. His deepening isolation creates a rift between him and his father as he struggles to repair his broken life. He meets two people who help him rekindle his desire to live, and Italy's favorite pastime, soccer,  becomes a  source of salvation for him.

Brigid Pasulka pens stories of genuine people we can relate to. Love, loss, family, friendship, and community dominate her themes. She writes from the heart, and she will touch your heart with her words. After you read this, check out her first novel, A Long, Long, Time Ago and Essentially True,another tour de force of multi-generational magic.
