Product Description

In December 1963, Lucette Laganado, her parents, two brothers and sisters arrived on a frozen pier in New York City, in debt, destitute and without any family to greet them. Like countless generations of immigrants arriving in America in search of a new future, Lucette faced obstacles of language, assimilation, and ultimately the search for prosperity. 'The Man in the White Sharkskin Suit' is a memoir of her family's fall from prominence among the elegance of Cairo and ultimate exodus to the cold shore of New York in a moving tale of tragedy, tradition, and triumph.
