Reviews

"Joanna Eleftheriou's collection This Way Back offers a series of essays that both stand alone and form a larger narrative about immigration, bicultural identity, sexual orientation, and the pull of a landscape. These lovely and moving essays are nostalgic, complex, and thoughtful, with sentences you will underline and return to and that will sear you with their beauty."
Sonya Huber, author of Pain Woman Takes Your Keys and Other Essays from a Nervous System

"Intimate and a touch mournful, most powerfully so when the author writes about her sexuality. . . . These essays reveal an impassioned and hard-fought sense of self and place."​​​​​​​
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"The essays entice every sense. . . . Heartfelt and heartrending."
Foreword Reviews
