    Review quote
    "While Lanchester's parentage and transient childhood in the 'hybrid, postcolonial-to-capitalist bubble' are far from ordinary, his insight into the nature of families, their secrets and their sacrifices strike universal chords in this lovingly told account of how one storyteller came to be." - "Publisher's Weekly" "From the Hardcover edition."
