My Broken Language : A Memoir

Reviewed By: 

Quiara AlegrÍa Hudes, who wrote In the Heights, sings the body electric in this lyrical memoir. The child of a spiritual Puerto Rican mother and a Jewish atheist father, Hudes dives deep into issues of identity, class, culture, and language. The language! Striking. Alive. Gorgeous. it kept me turning the pages late into the night.
