"In this unique short story collection . . . myriad facets of Peace Corps life and the culture of diverse lands are examined . . . [the authors] get to the heart of the human endeavor as they write about language, food, custom, social and familial politics, racial differences, sexual decorum, violence and disease as well as instances of deep confusion and transcendent communion."
Donna Seaman, ALA Booklist
"A wonderful collection of stories that take you from Africa to South America to Asia while probing important issues of place, identity, and tension in a world grown closer but still suffering from a huge gap between have and have-not nations . . . A terrific idea; highly recommended wherever good literature is read."
Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal
