The more I read of Tamers arrival into the USA the more I got absorbed into his story. At first he comes across as quite gauche in his approach to American life and the writing seems to feel this hesitancy and uncertainty too. Its here he makes a choice that affects the rest of his life. An understandable one I think, all be it unlawful.
We follow Tamer and his growth through his schooling and beyond, his strength of character and his intelligence unfolding before our eyes. The writing develops along with him and as his fortunes change and his misdemeanour is uncovered, we glimpse an insight into the American judicial and penal system. Without any self pity, Tamer describes the processes he went through: a man not trying to garner sympathy but one merely trying to explain what happened and the frustrations that ensued. From one tiny mistake in an attempt to better himself, he suffered greatly.
When the garden looks once more rosy, more hurdles are thrust at him and again he sets about leaping those hurdles.
Tamer manages to explain some quite complex legal and scientific issues in an understandable way which isn't easy but they are integral to his story so need to be mentioned.
I was left with a whole mix of emotions when I'd finished reading, from sorrow at what he has endured to pride in his achievements. A gritty, honest memoir that I am glad to have read.
