Reviews

"A clear-eyed look at the insecurity and yearning for a sense of belonging that are a part of the immigrant experience . . . Movingly told." --The Washington Post Book World

"Extraordinary . . . The voice of personal and political history as it lives now." --The Bloomsbury Review

"Simply wonderful." --Los Angeles Times

"[A] tender, charming book . . . There is a charge to Alvarez's writing, a poetic intensity, that is truly original." --The Miami Herald

"Poignant . . . Powerful . . . Beautifully captures the threshold experience of the new immigrant, where the past is not yet a memory." --The New York Times Book Review

"Subtle . . Powerful . . . Reveals the intricacies of family, the impact of culture and place, and the profound power of language." --The San Diego Tribune
