Immigrant Lessons

Paperback
Immigrant Lessons is the story of two women, forty years apart, crossing the sea to the shores of their promised land one fleeing Hitler, the other pursuing her spirituality and finding gain as well as loss in the transition. With unusual candor and insight, this warm, lively, and at times laugh-out-loud funny book explores in rich color the rewards and challenges of immigration and family relationships. Part memoir, part lyrical prose poem, Judith Edelman-Green s fluid tale of dislocation and change, enrichment, growth, and just plain survival will appeal to anyone who has ever been displaced, by circumstance or by choice.
