Beschreibung

Born into a life of constant financial, physical, and moral threat, Meti Birabiro takes refuge in literature and the fantastic. "Blue Daughter of the Red Sea "is Birabiro's poetic account of the harsh reality of her young life spread across three continents. Her voice is a fresh melange of child and adult perspectives, at once brutally honest and wise beyond her years. Through her journey from Ethiopia to Italy and finally to the United States, we encounter Birabiro's relatives, friends, and enemies--relationships so intense that these people become her vampires, devils, angels, and saints. These characterizations always lead her back to the truth, helping her to decipher what is fair and good, to understand what she must cherish and what she must rage against.

Portrait

Meti Birabiro studied comparative literature at the University of California, Berkeley. She currently lives in the United States.
