Review: The Ungrateful Refugee by Dina Nayeri | The Fountain
A thorough explanation on what it is like to be a refugee, Dina Nayeri's memoir, reflection, investigation considers it from many angles, and offers a balanced voice. With much talk of Hotel Barba, her striving to go to the best university in the States and her clear focus, there is an inspirational aspect to this title, and Dina Nayeri still takes the time to critique herself in the way that she handles her position of being both a refugee from Iran and also having spent three decades in the U.S.
