Reviews
"This thoughtful and beautifully written memoir is a revelation about the allure of assimilation and the evasiveness of identity."
-- Booklist

"Vividly detailed ... sometimes painfully funny, sometimes painfully honest ... you walk away from The Peddler's Grandson with a sense of the importance of making a separate peace, and understanding that a person can be defined not by how he fits into the world, but by how he stands defiant in the face of a world apart."
-- USA Today
