Arrival is a collection of soulful short stories exploring the search for home and identity in a new land and culture. The reader gets a glimpse of the immigrants’ struggles, joys, and challenges in a language that flows easily with a witty and poetic sensibility.
Distinct yet similar, the stories present readers with the trials and tribulations of people who are caught between two worlds: one that they have left and the other they have adopted. Right from Arrival—the opening story that provides the collection its name—to Departure and to Postscript, the last two stories, its characters face an identity crisis. Emotional and funny, this book is a poignant reminder of the ever-evolving search for a home from one world to the other.
