Despite their attempts at assimilation, the Ivarins find themselves still struggling to find a balance between their Russian roots and their American lives, between their past and their future--and those of their children.Based in part upon Hobsons own childhood, First Papers is a tender portrait of the tension between embracing a foreign culture full of opportunity while longing for a lost homeland.
