"Written with a reporter's flair for people and places. . . .Recommended."-Library Journal

"If Ariel Sabar's My Father's Paradise were only about his father's life, it would be a remarkable enough story about the psychic costs of immigration. But Sabar's family history turns out to be more than the chronicle of one man's efforts to retain something of his homeland in new surroundings. It's also a moving story about the near-death of an ancient language and the tiny flicker of life that remains in it. . . . The chapters describing Yona's budding success as a linguist are thrilling."- Washington Post Book World

"Remarkable...A moving story about the near-death of an ancient language and the tiny flicker of life that remains in it." "The Washington Post Book World "

"Voices like Susan Hand Shetterly's are soothing . . . Shetterly puts a hand on your forearm and says, come walk along the Maine coast. Let's consider other species, eels and hummingbirds." The Los Angeles Times
"
"Excellent A compelling read Told with novelistic attention to narrative and detail, but its heart is Ariel's heart, that of a son searching with love for the meaning of his relationship with his father. "The Providence (RI) Journal "

"


"A powerful story of the meaning of family and tradition inside a little-known culture." "San Francisco Chronicle "
