    1. Losing My Religion deals with the struggle of identity in a foreign land, a concept with which I'm quite familiar and the reason I wanted to read this book. The writing in Losing My Religion is beautiful, almost poetic in places, and interspersed with many of the author's emotions. The humor, when it comes, is quite unexpected and delightful. Femi Fatoyinbo was raised in Nigeria, a country steeped in culture and tradition. When Femi moves to America in his adult life, he struggles to adjust to b [...]


    2. The struggle of immigrants to retain the heritage of their homeland while assimilating into the American way of life is as old as our country itself.

In these count [...]


    5. Losing My Religion is a captivating story of one man’s uniquely recounted history—from his childhood and coming of age in the Motherland—to the navigation of his academic, professional, and personal lives in the Americas. Femi, the main character, deals with issues of assimilation and isolation; of being able to live life on his own terms, and his intrinsic responsibility to the Souls who came before him to maintain and propagate his culture to those who are yet to come.As informative as a [...]
