Publisher's Description

Over the past decade, Mary Pipher has been a great source of wisdom, helping us to better understand our family members. Now she connects us with the newest members of the American family--refugees. In cities all over the country, refugees arrive daily. Lost Boys from Sudan, survivors from Kosovo, families fleeing Afghanistan and Vietnam: they come with nothing but the desire to experience the American dream. Their endurance in the face of tragedy and their ability to hold on to the virtues of family, love, and joy are a lesson for Americans. Their stories will make you laugh and weep--and give you a deeper understanding of the wider world in which we live.
The Middle of Everywhere moves beyond the headlines into the homes of refugees from around the world. Working as a cultural broker, teacher, and therapist, Mary Pipher has once again opened our eyes--and our hearts--to those with whom we share the future.

Mary Pipher, Ph.D., is the author of three bestselling books, including Reviving Ophelia, which was on the New York Times bestseller list for more than two years.

Editorial Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE MIDDLE OF EVERYWHERE

"Pipher enters the hearts and homes of refugees who now live virtually from coast to coast, chronicling their struggles. . . . Her work is a plea for others to join her in a campaign of understanding."--USA Today

"Pipher unites refugees, people who have fled some of the most oppressive regimes in the world, with all of us. . . . [She] is taking this moment to teach us un-American behaviors: Patience, manners, and tolerance."--Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
