This novel, like many similar novels, offers insight into the plight of immigration to the USA. The sequel to America,America, the story opens in New York City with Stavros making the final preparations for the arrival of the rest of his family. There is immense detail in this novel and many characters. The dialogue is dense and detailed and the narrative is filled with equally demanding characters. This is not a self indulgent literary fiction novel yet demands the same level of attention.
