"I have now worked with Marina on two books, and I give her my highest recommendation. In my first book, The Mystery of the Kibbutz, Marina was instrumental at the development stage. She encouraged me to tell my family story, which turned out to be the part of the book readers liked and remembered the most. The second book, Streets of Gold, was at a more advanced stage when Marina read every single word with the precision of a fine jeweler. Her amazing editing raised the manuscript to a new level. Marina is thorough, clear, thoughtful, and deep. She has a unique talent to detect everything that is weak and confusing in a book and to make simple, practical, and insightful suggestions that magically make the book so much better. I can’t thank Marina enough, and I recommend her in the highest possible terms.” (Ran Abramitzky, Professor of Economics at Stanford, author of THE MYSTERY OF THE KIBBUTZ and co-author with Leah Boustan of STREETS OF GOLD: America's Untold Story of Immigrant Success, forthcoming 2022)
