Santos "Santos writes simply and skillfully of his countrymen who leave home for Americ a, of the pain of separation, loneliness, longing, yesterday's hopes and tomorro w's dreams. His portraits of these gentle, courageous exiles are moving as he sh ows how each struggles to make his way in the new land, trying to find a life fa r from his roots while sustained by the dream of a return home. . . . Santos get s to the heart of what it is like to be uprooted, alone, alien."--Publishers Wee kly "Santos is a writer of deceptive simplicity, one whose graceful storytelling con ceals considerable political commitment. . . . His stories capture with warmth a nd deep humanity the pain of exile and the cost of progress."--Washington Post
