Bringing American culture closer to new immigrants
If you don’t know it, you might want to read “Lost in Translation,” a memoir by Eva Hoffman, who came to the USA from Poland (as a teen, I believe). It is the story about her life in a new language.
Thank you for the suggestion, Dr. Stein. It sounds like a book I’d be interested in!
One of the things that is remarkable about the book is the beauty of her writing (in English). Years ago I recommended it to a woman who came to this country from Poland as an adult. She was so taken with it that she bought copies for most of her extended family, all of whom had also immigrated here. Anyway, I do hope you like it.
