Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In conversations with more than forty East African immigrants living in Seattle, Washington, and Portland, Oregon, Sandra Chait captures the immigrantsÕ struggle for identity in the face of competing stories and documents how some individuals have been able to transcend the ghosts from the past and extend a tentative hand to their former enemies.

Sandra M. Chait, who immigrated to the Unites States from South Africa, taught African literature and served as associate director of the University of Washington's Program on Africa. She is an independent scholar in Seattle.

"Chait is to be commended for capturing the complex interrelationship of 20th and 21st century immigrant communities from the Horn of Africa as they engage in healing the wounds of wars and finding salaam--peace--in their adopted country." -Journal of Immigrant and Refugee Studies

"Chait . . . captures the complexity of identity and the horror and hopefulness of life for her subjects." -Seattle Times
