Synopsis: The author looks back on his young adulthood, when he attended Pomona College in California.
From Library Journal:
Mehta, a New Yorker writer, presents the sixth volume in an autobiographical series, "Continents of Exile." It describes Mehta's undergraduate years at Pomona College in California and gives a unique perspective on America in the 1950s. This is a lyric narrative of an unusual, talented blind youth from India. He attempted to untangle contrary cultural forces, trying to be accepted without special considerations. As a student, he encountered not only the expected problems--cultural and ethnic--but also financial ones, when he set out to live the life of an ordinary American college student. He succeeded in experiencing fraternity life and dating in the sighted world. His vivid account of his college life makes for a delightful book that will appeal to a variety of readers.
