An immigration story

A personal message from the author:

I wrote the book to inform the thousands of second or third generation Greeks of the Diaspora about what their ancestors went though in making this great change in their lives. I hope they can feel some of the agonizing nostalgia their parents or grandparents felt and finally I want them to feel proud of their success in the new home.

— Yianni Lambrinako

Out of Silence is an autobiographical story about a young man who suffers night blindness and his family -father being deaf- immigrating from a mountain village near Sparta to Chicago in 1969. It’s a story about the struggle of adjusting to a new life full of challenges and the constant pain of nostalgia for the lost paradise of rural life.
