In this family saga our narrator Cal describes in great detail the flight of his ethnically Greek grandparents from their native village in Turkey, their subsequent immigration and establishment of a family business in Detroit, and how Cal came to be who he is, in more ways than one.

For a week I was fully absorbed by this mesmerizing book -- absolutely unputdownable and well-deserving of its Pulitzer.
