The Body Papers

 

REVIEWS

“Talusan chronicles that fraught passage from one world, one body, to another, marking with sensitivity how an American life can be both burden and benediction.”

LUIS FRANCIA, NEW YORK TIMES

“Such commentary, while righteous and earned, is not the point of this indelible book. Talusan has the instincts of a storyteller, teasing out her narrative through images and allusion.”

JENNIFER SZALAI, NEW YORK TIMES

Grace Talusan’s finely-wrought and eloquent memoir, “The Body Papers,” out April 9, was the winner of the Restless Books Prize for New Immigrant Writing. The book is visceral, bodily, and throbs with pain and trauma — sexual abuse by a family member, cancer, the phantom-limb ache of an outsider in a foreign land, and later, as an outsider in the homeland.

NINA MACLAUGHLIN, THE BOSTON GLOBE
