Loosely structured as a letter home, a “writer” explicates the longings, nostalgia and regrets that exile, even voluntary exile, produces. B. Ruby Rich, writing in The Village Voice, states, “A subtle answer to travelogue mentalities… turns the tables on the tourists in their native land and reflects on the strangeness of the self, the other, and even its own attempt to communicate between cultures.”
