Savage Feast, a family history in recipes, is out in paperback. Boris' previous two novels, Don't Let My Baby Do Rodeo and A Replacement Life, were both New York Times Notable Books of the Year. Both are out in paperback.
In 2020, Boris began teaching creative writing in the MFA program at The University of Montana.
Savage Feast was one of Amazon's Best Books of the Month. The New York Times called it "a tightly-written page turner," and The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Vanity Fair, and Publishers Weekly agreed: “Fishman’s immigrant saga masterfully evokes a family that survives, united by food." Here's Boris on NPR's Morning Edition and in Saveur. Details here.
