'The Far Away Brothers’ Breathes Vivid Life Into Immigration Issues

Lauren Markham's The Far Away Brothers (Crown) has received a fantastic review from Jennifer Senior in The New York Times. Senior writes:

“The Far Away Brothers” is impeccably timed, intimately reported and beautifully expressed. Markham brings people and places to rumbling life; she has that rare ability to recreate elusive, subjective experiences — whether they’re scenes she never witnessed or her characters’ interior psychological states — without taking undue liberties. In many ways, her book is reminiscent of Adrian Nicole LeBlanc’s 'Random Family.' ...

One of the finest virtues of 'The Far Away Brothers' is that it makes vibrantly real an issue that some see only as theoretical, illuminating aspects of the immigrant experience normally hidden from view."

Mother Jones has a great Q&A with Lauren about the process of writing her book and its subjects. And NPR says: "You should read The Far Away Brothers. We all should."

Lauren will be speaking about her book on several stops throughout her Northern California book tour and at several book festivals in the US. You can find her upcoming events here.
