Grandfather's Journey

By Allen Say

Lyrical, breathtaking, splendid—words used to describe Allen Say’s Grandfather’s Journey when it was first published in 1993. At once deeply personal yet expressing universally held emotions, this tale of one man’s love for two countries and his constant desire to be in both places captured readers’ attention and hearts. Years later, it remains as historically relevant and emotionally engaging as ever.
