Always from Somewhere Else

In the tradition of her critically acclaimed memoir of her mother, A Cross and a Star, Marjorie Ago sin writes the life of her father, Moises Agosin, a doctor, scientist, and classical pianist whose life reflects the lives of so many Jews of his generation, who were destined to be always refugees, always “others” — always from somewhere else.In Always From Somewhere… More Else, Agosin’s homage to her father becomes much more than a simple life story; it is a captivating and moving meditation on the boundaries of national and cultural identities, the meanings of exile and home, and the legacies of storytelling, memory, and love.
