Praise for Everything Lost Is Found Again

"Subtle, witty, and well-observed, McGrath's narrative is a chronicle of spiritual growth and a memorable love letter to the remote African kingdom that stole his heart. A warmly humane memoir." -Kirkus Reviews

"A wonderful book, keenly observed, a breezy, thought-provoking read. ... McGrath is a likable, curious guide, embracing whatever adventures come along." -Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"An endearing combination of insightful commentary and sympathetic comedy. This is a book in the best tradition of travel writing. ... Laugh-out-loud moments are balanced by heart-warming interludes, and altogether, this is an illuminating and enjoyable read that reminds readers of the essential oneness of humanity." -Booklist

"It is messy, often overwritten, sometimes jumbled. But above all it is joyful. McGrath tells his stories, even the tragic ones, with hope and humor--the greatest defenses against despair." -Asymptote
