Praise

"Absorbing. . . . An almost Proustian portrait." —The New York Times

"Said has turned the writing of a memoir itself into perhaps the most profound type of homecoming a perennial exile can know." —The Village Voice Literary Supplement

"Engrossing. . . . [Said has] an almost Proustian feel for smells, sounds, sights, and telling anecdotes." —The New York Review of Books

"If autobiography is above all a means of explaining one’s self to oneself, then Out of Place . . . must be seen as a triumph." —The Boston Globe
