The Long Journey to the Fair is a book about the consequences of wars, oppressive totalitarian regimes, intolerance, and prejudice. The stories told are of people whose lives had been impacted by these historical events and attitudes, and their search for a place of safety, peace, and security. It describes the meandering journey of generations of Armenian and Jewish families, the travails of Eastern Europeans and the Italian family after WWII, and the bonds created by their common destinies.
