Abstract or Summary
  • This collection of personal essays, inspired by Richard Rodriguez's Hunger of Memory, raises questions about the separation that becomes apparent through writing, education, and transitions between class. The author uses her personal experience of writing in, and attending a private university to explore the interactions of class, literacy, and education. The memoirs portray a journeya search for a literal and writerly "home." While some of the memoirs in this collection focus on the author's personal experience as a writer in the academy, others illustrate the possible tension between family and education. Through the explication of emotion and experience, the author suggests that the comfort and familiarity of "home" and identity in writing - and in life - are internal, rather than external.
