Read full description of the books:
This book is difficult to describe, as it's written in a very interiorized, circular fashion. My sense is we'll each relate to it differently. We're inside the central character's mind, and at times it felt as if she might be going mad. But by the end of the book I had a very strong sense of the cultural dislocation and identity confusion created by the imposition of one culture on another; with the subsequent shaming that happens in a child's mind, when their birth culture is discounted by the dominant culture. It has stayed with me.
