9780747572657: How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents

Yolanda Garcia is taking a trip to the Dominican Republic to revisit the country where she was born, and which her family was forced to flee for New York when she was a child. Previously privileged and wealthy, the family finds it hard to adjust to immigrant life in the Bronx, particularly their tough old-world father, Papi. As they try immerse themselves in the American way of life, Yolanda and her three sisters begin to rebel against Papi's traditions and values, each in their own way. But, however the girls may iron the curls from their hair and blend their Hispanic accents to fit in, they will always see the world through Dominican eyes. Now Yolanda needs to return one more time, to recover forgotten memories and remember that part of her she lost.

About the Author:

Julia Alvarez grew up in the Dominican Republic and emigrated to the United States in 1960. How The Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents received the PEN/Oakland Josephine Miles Award, was listed by Americas magazine as 1993's #1 bestseller in Latin America, and was named by both the ALA and the New York Times Book Review as a Notable Book of 1991. Her second novel, In The Time Of The Butterflies, was nominated for the 1995 National Book Critics Circle Award. Her other works include !Yo!, Something To Declare and In The Name Of Salome. She is also the author of children's and young adult books and poetry collections. She lives in Vermont and in the Dominican Republic, where she and her husband have a sustainable coffee farm and literacy centre.

From AudioFile:

Alvarez's poetic prose, with its rich, sensual detail, is brought perfectly to life by five readers. With expressive voices and accents that move adeptly between English and Spanish, they narrate the interwoven stories of four daughters of a wealthy family forced to leave the Dominican Republic and settle in the United States. Adjustment to immigrant life and its long-term consequences is explored with psychological astuteness from the point of view of each sister. Oddly, the narrators' voices are similar, making it difficult to distinguish among them, although this doesn't detract from the pleasures of listening. The rich detail, emotional depth, and fine narration make this a book that invites multiple listenings. E.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
