Elizabeth Nunez Discusses Not For Everyday Use

 
Sunday 7/13/2014 @ 3:00PM - 6:00PM Joining me this afternoon, in the 5 o'clock hour, author Elizabeth Nunez. We will be discussing her most recent book, Not For Everyday Use.


“Elizabeth Nunez has written a book about love: love of family, love of place, love of literature, and even the love of human flaws. Not for Everyday Usemanages to be a memoir rich with tenderness that doesn’t shy away from pain and loss. Reading this book was like sitting with a dear friend for a long conversation and only later realizing I’d been in the presence of a true artist. It’s not easy to sound casual but attain the profound yet somehow Nunez pulls it off, page after page.”
—Victor LaValle, author of The Devil in Silver
“Elizabeth Nunez’s Not for Everyday Use is that powerful and essential work which redefines our understanding of the experience of emigration and its impact on families. It is, quite simply, one of the most important books I’ve read about the intellectual and emotional work we must do to understand our forebears’ lives in the context of history and colonialism.”
—Louise DeSalvo, author of Writing as a Way of Healing: How Telling Our Stories Transforms Our Lives
“Elizabeth Nunez is one of the finest and most necessary voices in contemporary American and Caribbean fiction.”
—Colum McCann, author of Let the Great World Spin
“A new book by Elizabeth Nunez is always excellent news.”
—Edwidge Danticat
