A fusion of voices and deeply personal experiences from every corner of the globe, Unrooted Childhoods presents a cultural mosaic of today's citizens of the world. In twenty stirring memoirs of childhoods spent packing, writings by both world-famous and first-time authors (many published here for the first time) make universal the story of growing up without the opportunity to ever feel rooted. Best-selling fiction and non-fiction authors Isabel Allende, Carlos Fuentes, Pat Conroy, Pico Iyer and Ariel Dorfman contribute powerful and deeply personal accounts of mobile childhoods and the cultural experiences they engender. The memoirs touch on both the benefits and the difficulties of growing up in the ever changing landscape of diplomatic, military and other expatriate communities.

A poignant chronicle of the diaspora of the heart—and the heart’s quest and longing for that universal place called home. - Ken Wells, Front Page Editor, The Wall Street Journal

Unrooted Childhoods offers exquisite illustration of the global nomad experience. Readers who lived the life will…see reflected the many dimensions of their own unrooted childhoods. - Barbara Schaetti, Ph.D., The Crestone Institute

Each [Third Culture Kid] has his or her unique story, but the shared experience of this cultural group furnishes clarity and perspective as well as comfort and encouragement.
