Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Ron Suskind, Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist and author of A Hope in the Unseen
“Many people talk about what they can do to reach across divides, to create a better world. The Rosens didn't just talk — they plunged, headlong, into an extraordinary adventure of shared purpose and unflinching commitment. Michael Rosen takes readers on a death-defying journey — gritty, surprising, funny and fiercely honest. What was defied? The death of hope. What we're now graced with? An inspring book about what one family can accomplish.”

Diane McWhorter, Pulitzer Prizewinning author of Carry Me Home
“For Michael Rosen to have lived this story would've been sufficient. For him to be able to write about it with such beauty and grit, such delicacy and bluntness, seems like a gift of destiny. What Else But Home renders our country's defining forces of race and class—and immigration—down to the society's molecular unit, the family, and shows us what we have become and might become, in all our heroic messiness. This is a valentine to America's diversity—and indeed to every enterprise of courage, chaos and love that results in magic.”
