A Place for Us by Nicholas Gage
Item # - 1978-1-886284-73-9
A Place for Us is by the acclaimed author of Eleni, which according to the New York Times "gave us the heightened drama of a Greek tragedy... A Place for Us tells the gentler if no less moving story...of an immigrant family struggling to reconcile the ghosts of the past with the possibilities of the future." This intimate portrait of life in Worcester's Greek immigrant community in the 1950's is according to the New Yorker, both "absorbing and affecting...an American success story."
