Summary
"The essays featured in this volume are modern accounts of immigration. Such writers as Edwidge Danticat (The Farming of Bones), Lucy Grealy (Autobiography of a Face), Ginu Kamani (Junglee Girl), Nelly Rosario, and Veronica Chambers (Mama's Girl) are just a few of the first generation immigrant women who address such issues as identity, ethnicity, race, and how the self begins to take on and absorb the label "American."" "As this collection demonstrates, each experience is completely unique - one woman may have a sense of instant belonging while another may confront a feeling of alienation."--Jacket
