Intimate details of persons and outlines of the cultural and political outcomes engendered by the exodus at the turn of the 20th century. Rich with information and meticulously researched, it is a work of great merit.
An autobiographical fiction with meaning for any reader, particularly if language and its meaning to humankind is of interest. Sometimes funny and warm, sometimes dark and disturbing, it’s a great work of literature.
