Description - Homelands by Patricia Justine Tumanq

In Homelands, writers investigate the complexities of how women experience, remember, and imagine journeys to their homelands. Approaching the topic from varying perspectives exile, longing, belonging, diaspora, idealization they show that "homeland" isn't just a physical place. It can also be an imagined community, a part of one's identity, or simply a wavering memory. It's a world we create and re-create every day. Among the contributors are Etel Adnan, who describes her life as an exile from Beruit after choosing to leave a city at war. Agate Nesaule, who as a youngster left Latvia under Nazi and Soviet threat, writes of envying a young Latvian girl's life, rich in place, language, and music. Sarah McCormic echoes the experience of many "American mutts" who can claim so many heritages that they feel a connection to none. The writers in this collection beautifully capture the complicated notion of homeland and reflect the diversity of women's realities in the world. "
