Publishers Weekly gives early praise for A Stranger at My Table

FigueiredoIn new review, Publishers Weekly commends Ivo de Figueiredo’s forthcoming memoir A Stranger at My Table

“Figueiredo’s touching, contemplative chronicle of loss and self-discovery documents his Norwegian childhood, adult reconciliation with his estranged father, and his search for his paternal roots in Goa. […] Poring over family history, tapes, and photographs, Figueiredo reconstructs the events preceding his birth. […] This deeply realized personal narrative of a beloved mother and a distant father, finally understood from the perspective of adulthood, is a moving reading experience.” Read the full review.
