Review roundup


Island of BonesIsland of Bones
by Joy Castro in the Portland
Book Review

“Through
it all, Castro continues to struggle with questions of identity and membership:
do I really belong, and where, and to whom? Who am I, really? Her search for
the truth of her own life is given to us in honest, eloquent, and insightful
prose. That we are given her story in fragments seems exactly right, for she’s
clear: her journey is not yet over.”

-Daniel Hobbs

by Stefan Zweig in The Washington Times

“Readers
of “The World of Yesterday” know that for the tormented Stefan Zweig, the
contrast between even his today and yesterday was acutely painful. How could he
not feel that the tomorrow awaiting him was bound to be unbearable?”

-Martin
Rubin
