We are so honored that this great woman decided to convey her thoughts and stories through writing. This is definitely her true talent. What a true inspiration for all aspiring writers (Latina and otherwise). This book is engaging, warmly accessible and insightful. Highly reccomended!
"How much of my verbal rhythm, my word choices, my attention to the sound of my prose comes from my native language as spoken by la familia." (page 126 Customs). She uses it all, it is and has become her.
This was our bookclub selection for March. I'm glad I've discovered this amazing writer, and this was my first read.
In the second part of Something to Declare, Alvarez talks about her writing process, the difficulty balancing a writing life with teaching and her "real life," and concludes with her Ten Commandments for writing, a poster of which hangs above my computer.
This book is a gift from Julia Alvarez to her many fans, and we thank her for it.
