Deborah Tall:
A Family of Strangers - livre d'occasion

ISBN: 1932511458

ID: 5604388

Without self-absorption, Tall traces the self's emergence in a place which she recognized from the start as her testing place."-Seamus Heaney "In the literature of place, Deborah Tall's book stands out for its delicacy, range of learning, and refreshing frankness."-Phillip Lopate In her third book of nonfiction, Deborah Tall explores the genealogy of the missing. Haunted by her orphaned father's abandonment by his extended family, his secretive, walled-off trauma and absenthistory, she sets off in pursuit of the family he claims not to have. From the dutiful happiness of Levittown in the 1950s to a stricken former 'shtetl' in Ukraine, we follow Tall's journey through evasions and lies. Reflecting on family secrecy, postwar American culture, and the urge for roots, Tall's search uncovers not just a missing family but an understanding of the part family and history play in identity. 'A Family of Strangers' is Tall's life's work, told in such exacting, elegant language that the suppressed past vividly asserts its place in the present. biographies,essays,essays and correspondence,ethnic and national,family relationships,history,jewish,literature and fiction,memoirs,science and math Family Relationships, Sarabande Books, Incorporated
