Renowned writer Jerry Pinto endorses A Stranger at My Table

Figueiredo“In a manner that put me in mind of John Berger’s novel Here is Where We Meet, Ivo de Figueiredo looks back without anger but with an astonishing compassion at a father who went missing from his son’s life. This is a story that could have been a novel for it has the breadth of vision and the interiority of perception required for one. A heartbreaking and beautiful account of a family’s lives.” – Jerry Pinto

Pinto is the author of Helen: The Life and Times of an H-Bomb (2006), which won the Best Book on Cinema Award from the National Film Awards, and Em and the Big Hoom, winner of the Windham-Campbell prize in 2016.
