Summary
In The Bread We Ate, Ferrarelli continues the work begun in Dreamsearch (malafemmina) and Home is a Foreign Country (Eadmer) of putting into words her own struggles with displacement and loss, with the language and culture - misinterpretations and misidentification - but also those of the people who came before. As the one educated in English, she took it upon herself to honor and remember the lives of those who had come before and who had paved the way with their hard work, to speak for those who could not speak for themselves. Drawing from the past and the present, she gives us vivid individual portraits set in a community of shared values and shared ideals, "matching new bricks with the old, /blending the colors to look good."
