Poles Apart is a story of human triumph. At the same time, it's a story about the adverse effects of "not talking about the elephant in the room." It features delicious characters and equally delicious food. I love a book where you learn about history, human nauture, culture, and you can practically taste the food!
The characters are endearing. The story is compelling. Read it!
So far I adore this book , it really speaks to our human need to belong and understand our families.

The writing is superbly clean. The characters amazingly drawn. Don't pass this one by.
Zero plot. One of the boringest books I've ever read.
