The Turk and My Mother

I quite enjoyed this book by Mary Helen Stefaniak. It's the intertwined stories of various immigrants to Milwaukee and their descendants over 80 years. It's funny and honest and simply a pleasure to read.

If my opinion counted for anything, I wouldn't have chosen the title nor the cover for this book. Neither seemed to quite fit. You get something quite different, especially with Staramajka. But that's my only complaint. Recommended.
