Editorial Reviews

Review

"An extraordinary book.... This is history without detachment, a memoir made universal. To read it is to relive the times." —Kansas City Star

"Wright remembers in a smoothly articulate style that takes us back into history in near novelistic fashion." —Chicago Sun-Times

"A wonderfully readable, thoroughly absorbing memoir of a twenty-five-year span of wrenching change." —The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Beautifully traces a young man's personal reckoning through the years of chaos in his homeland. In the New World succeeds because of its subtle interchange between memory and fact." —
The Boston Globe --This text refers to the paperback edition.
