John Phillip Santos won immense acclaim for his book Places Left Unfinished at the Time of Creation, a finalist for the National Book Award. In this beautifully written new book, Santos tells of how a family-his mother's-erased and forgot over time their ancient origins in Spain. Blending genres brilliantly, Santos raises profound questions about whether we can ever find our true homeland and what we can learn from our treasured, shared cultural legacies.
