Confessions of an Unrepentant Exile
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH), 9780547549460, 332pp.
Publication Date: September 27, 2011
Dorfman's wry and masterfully told account provides a page-turning tour of the past several decades of North/South political history and of the complex consequences of revolution and tyranny. He has lived in the aftermath of revolution, and his perspective could not be more relevant today.
"Feeding on Dreams" is a passionate reminder that we are all exiles, that we are all threatened with annihilation if we do not find and celebrate the refuge of common humanity, as Dorfman did during his decades of loss and resurrection.
