Reema Zaman delivers her memoir in a bold, firm voice full of strength as she describes how she came to be a feminist writer living in Oregon. Her story begins in a traditional Bangladeshi home when she is a girl. She draws the listener in as though we were sitting down for coffee and swapping stories of our youth. In a contemplative tone, Zaman describes her mother's limited choices as compared to her own range of opportunities. She dramatizes memories from her younger years by using a childlike persona, including a portrayal of herself at age 3 as the family moves from Bangladesh to Hawaii. Listeners are carried along by this engaging contemporary story of migration, family, and self-discovery. M.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2019]
