Just finished part 2 and about to begin the final section, Stones, 1989-2000. I still love this book. Schwartz skillfully tells the story of the immigrants, but also the story of their children. The survivors are bound by the past and their common experiences, but they also grow and change. I'm anxious to discuss this book with others.

Par 2, New Dictonary, covering 1960-1973, tells the story of our protagonists as immigrants now living in New York. I'm struck by the similiarity to other stories of "displaced persons," such as Enemies:A Love Story and .

Just finished part 1:Identity Papers, covering 1945-1950. Some people have complained that Schwartz's lack of quotation marks makes it difficult to determine who is speaking. I don't find that to be the case. In fact, it makes me read more closely, more carefully. I've learned a lot about the politics of the post-War refugee camp.

This is a beautifully written, compelling novel. The author wrote this book to fill the gap in literature about Holocaust survivors, especially immediately after WWII. Schwarz skillfully moves among many character to tell many different stories.
