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."
