The narrator describes the first years of his life from the perspectives and in the voice of his evolving consciousness. This story is profoundly personal. Yet the work captures and conveys the manner in which many children come to consciousness, attain to identity and life, enter a family, and in time depart to construct an adulthood of their own. The narrative is accompanied by several historical photographs from Ukraine and the U.S.
