Irene Guilford discusses her new book Waiting for Stalin to Die.
The book captures the essence of the immigrant experience. It is the story of four Lithuanians who settled in Toronto during the years 1949 to 1953 and lived in places familiar to many of us.
In an acute portrayal of family life, life in boarding houses, in the Lithuanian community and the parish. . . we see clearly how the newcomers share the gnawing pain of longing, the guilt of leaving lives and loves behind, how they "clung together in the fierce closeness of a people far from home", thinking their life here was temporary.
