  • Enlightening the immigrant experience

    An interesting window of the immigrant experience and how it has shaped not only individuals but also us as a nation of immigrants. As someone who is many generations beyond the immigration stories of my own family it brings into focus some of the issues that immigrants have always faced as well as struggles that are unique in our modern world. Issues like the transfer of academic credentials, requalification, and work experience requirements. These are issues that did not exists when my family immigrated in the 1800s.

  • Perspectives on the immigrant experience

    “Immigrant City” is a book of short stories which largely parallels the experiences of the author's family members as immigrants to Canada. The author lives in Toronto, a city with a very multicultural population, and the stories are likely representative of the immigrant experience. I found the tone of the stories quite depressing, but likely the experiences of many immigrants mirror those of the characters in these stories. While I enjoyed the author’s “Natasha and Other Stories” very much, I did not find the stories in "Immigrant City" to be as enjoyable.

    Thanks for your feedback!
