Overall Score




Historical Documentation


In more than 40 collected stories, the new voices of immigrants living in St. Louis recount tales both dramatic and mundane: A Liberian tells of inheriting the role of chief witch doctor from his uncle at the age of nine. A Bosnian tells of being rescued by a fishing boat from drowning in the Adriatic Sea. A Russian vividly remembers the smell of fresh bread and cold milk after returning from the siege of Leningrad. The stories these immigrants tell, writing in their new language, will resonate with anyone who has made or observed a similar difficult transition.
