“Utopia’s Suicide” is a fascinating exposé on the immigrant experience, and how one adapts to his new homeland.

In his new memoir, “Utopia’s Suicide: An Americans’ Tolerance or Else, Versus Emigrants Handbook - Or Not? An Incomplete Autobiographical Trilogy Part One” (published by AuthorHouse), author John Paul reflects on immigration from once Kingdom, turned Socialistic Federative Republic of Yugoslavia, to the United States and the dueling natures of his beloved homeland and this new adopted country.

“Utopia’s Suicide” is a fascinating exposé on the immigrant experience, and how one adapts to his new homeland. Beginning in 1969, Paul arrives in Detroit seeking a better life for himself. Paul learns to navigate his new homeland and pursue the American Dream while still maintaining the traditions and cultures of his old country.

An excerpt from “Utopia’s Suicide”:

“Is it worth risking to leave the humble, predictable, known corner in the Old World, for a chance in turmoil of the legendary America? How? The interpretation of happenings on these continents as they relate to one life's adventure is the scope of this work, which is, before everything else, a collage of personal biography, illuminated by flashes of the remarkable historical moments preceding the emigration.”
