A Feather on the Breath of God
From Sigrid Nunez, the National Book Award-winning author ofThe Friend, comesA Feather on the Breath of God, a mesmerizing story about the tangled nature of relationships between parents and children, between language and love.
A young woman looks back to the world of her immigrant parents: a Chinese Panamanian father and a German mother. Growing up in a housing project in the 1950s and 1960s, she escapes into dreams inspired both by her parents’ stories and by her own reading and, for a time, into the otherworldly life of ballet. A yearning homesick mother, a silent and withdrawn father, the ballet—these are the elements that shape the young woman’s imagination and her sexuality.
