Fiction. Women's Studies. Translated by Katia Grubisic. DAUGHTER OF HERE is an experiment in memory, desire, and time. As she sifts through her international whirlwind romance with Célestin, her larger-than-life love for her daughter Mo, and her own childhood behind the Iron Curtain, Dolores's narrative shifts from Williamsburg to Tokyo, to Bucharest before and after the fall, and to Cairo at the first spark of the Arab Spring. Filmic and thought-provoking, DAUGHTER OF HERE straddles the political and the personal with ease.
