Part of the Literatures of the Americas book series (LOA)


Born in Lima and raised in the United States since the age of nine, author, editor and journalist Marie Arana traces her journey from her childhood in Peru to her formidable career in book publishing in New York City, journalism at The Washington Post, and authoring award-winning books in the U.S. She discusses how learning various languages, living and traveling in different parts of the world have affected her vision of domestic and global cultures. She also notes the importance of recovering history in her works which has taken her research to libraries and archives in South America as well as in the United States. As an advocate of writers and artists, she also organizes events at the National Books Festival in Washington D.C.
