Carmen Aguirre narrates the story of her dizzying childhood and turbulent adulthood as the daughter of Chilean resistance fighters. She describes the dislocation of temporary exile in America and the confusion of returning to South America as a teenager who fell into helping the militants. Aguirre's narration is rapid and unflinching as she portrays the range of emotions she experienced while trying to make sense of her personal and national histories. We hear the raw truth in her voice as she confronts memories of the violence and uncertainty she survived, both in childhood and adulthood. For those who want to learn more about Chile, and South America in general, this memoir offers an up-close-and-personal viewpoint. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2018]
