Read full description of the books:



A Place for us is the sequel to the book Eleni, which I read twice when it came out in the 1980s. In this one, there’s a scene that ends the story in July of 1983 which is exactly when I was experiencing Epirus, Greece for the first time as a newly married non-Greek Nifi. The book has so much meaning for me and I’m not sure why it took me so long to read it (written in 1989). During that time, I was trying to make sense of the area while overcoming my own culture shock and adjusting to marriage. In A Place for Us, the culture and history of Northern Epirus is interspersed throughout the tale of Gage’s experience as a nine-year-old refugee in the United States. His immigrant experience is peppered with such sadness but also with hilarious laugh-out-loud mishaps. Gage also tells of his father’s immigrant experience in the U.S., which has so many similarities to many of the Greek immigrants of the 1980s with whom I worked in diners and restaurants. I absolutely love this book but I honestly don’t know if it’s because of my own Greek connection, though I don’t think so. I heartily recommend reading, Eleni first. However A Place for Us can stand independently as its own book. In any event, this is a story for those readers who enjoy reading about history, culture and relationships.
