  • "The story of many exiles and three countries and two languages."@en
  • "In this memoir, the author "explores the many exiles of a life torn, from age two, between the United States and Latin America, between revolution and repression. Interwoven with the remarkable story of how he switched languages and cultures--not once, but three times--is a day-to-day acount of his multiple escapes from death during a military takeover in Chile."--Jacket."
  • "The author shares his experiences as an exiled Eastern European Jew, repeatedly fleeing countries and cultures only to be left without a place to call home or a culture he could completely define as his own."
  • "Ariel dorfman has been hailed as one of the "greatest living Latin American novelists" (Newsweek) and a "storyteller of almost mythic intensity" (The Financial Times). In his brilliant memoir, Heading South, Looking North, Dorfman explores the many exiles of a life torn, from age two, between the United States and Latin America, between revolution and repression. Interwoven with the remarkable story of how he switched languages and cultures--not once, but three times--is a day-by-day account of his multiple escapes from death during a military takeover in Chile. Dorfman filters these events through his dual and hybrid life, speaking, reading, thinking at times in Spanish, at times in English. Beautifully written and deeply moving, Heading South, Looking North is at once a vivid account of a life as complex and mysterious as the fictional characters Dorfman creates and an enthralling meditation about true personal conviction and courage in the late twentieth century."@en
