The book is a road-map for anyone from an immigrant background who has to satisfy the demands of more than one culture. It also recounts the kind of interplay of money and control that will be familiar to anyone from a wealthy family.
Humorously written, in the tradition of J.D.Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye or Philip Roth’s Goodbye, Columbus, First Passage is about adolescence and early manhood about family ties (and knots) – the story of a young man’s search for his place and purpose in a life of swirling confusion.
