What Immigration Is and Isn’t (An Immigrant Story)

Timothy Messen publishes article in the NYU Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russian.

"And that’s the funny thing about my “immigrant story”. You see, I’m NOT an immigrant. I’m… a kitchen Russian, just as Russian as this “Russian” bar in Kreuzberg. And being a kitchen whatever entails a different kind of immigration, if it’s still possible to think of it as immigration. The day-to-day logistics of immigration looks like clocking-in to English-speaking America and clocking-out to the Russian-speaking confines of home."
