Telling Our Lives PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Telling Our Lives free pdf Telling Our Lives explores how three working-class women-from Jewish, African-American, and Irish-American backgrounds-connect across their differences through storytelling and conversation. Three distinct voices intertwine in this book as the authors, now college professors, discuss family legacies of diaspora and dislocation, analyzing how these have shaped their personal and professional lives. Social class, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and spirituality intersect and diverge in these pages, as the authors reflect on how they have been enriched and transformed by the relationships forged in the process of storytelling.
