Mishkids must read this,
This review is from: Portofino (Paperback)
A mishkid is someone brought up in a missionary family. Often also referred to as a third culture kid, they are members of neither their parents' country's culture nor the culture in which they are brought up. Army kids and embassy kids also find it difficult to answer the question 'Where are you from?'
Portofino describes the tensions of being a mishkid beautifully. Not Swiss, not Italian, but not really American, not grown up but not a child, not religious but not worldly, Calvin Becker is more my kind of guy than Holden Caulfield.
Often hilarious, beautifully descriptive and a wry send up of the silly world of the religious.
