Thoroughly enjoyed this book, which is wonderful on many levels.
First, the writing is superb. Easy to read, interesting, smooth.
Then, there’s the subject matter. It’s a brave story told by a regular person baring her soul. Her endeavors and struggles are laid out for us to enjoy.
Finally, there’s a deeper level of importance to this book, which gives food for thought on many issues we don’t take the time to examine enough: education, the treatment of elders, our emphasis on work over family.
Overall, 13 Years in America is a great, worthwhile book to read.
