"A fine collection of essays on identity, at once wide-ranging and site-specific."

Kirkus Reviews

"Heartfelt and heartrending."

Foreword Reviews

“Joanna Eleftheriou’s collection This Way Back offers a series of essays that both stand alone and form a larger narrative about immigration, bicultural identity, sexual orientation, and the pull of a landscape. These lovely and moving essays are nostalgic, complex, and thoughtful, with sentences you will underline and return to and that will sear you with their beauty.”


Sonya Huber, author of Pain Woman Takes Your Keys and Other Essays from a Nervous System
