Critics are saying:
“This collection of portraits of immigrants includes migrations past and present that are loomed together in a great tapestry of stories. Like all great tapestries, not all the figures featured are human. That is why some of the immigrants are animals that have come to North America by way of many routes, some refugees of war. The lives brought together in IMMIGRANTS have much to teach us of “humanity” in many forms. — Professor E. Nerenberg, Wesleyan University
“Valerio writes with a light and deft touch, but what he recounts is heart-felt and very real.” — Professor Rebecca West, University of Chicago
“Valerio really knows both his history and his subject very well. No less important is the fact that he is a first-rate writer who can really tell a good story.” — Bestsellers
“A wonderful read.” — Larry King, USA Today
“The book has zest, high humor, madness, detached reflection, and pathos.” — Los Angeles Times
IMMIGRANTS – Volumes I & II is on sale wherever books are sold.
