9781550145038: Daughters of Empire: A Memoir of a Year in Britain and Beyond

A dual British-American national on her first return trip to England in over a decade, Jane Satterfield faced a woman's fundamental decision: to become a mother or to forge a new life on her own. That the decision was not so simple was only the first of many revelations. Satterfield casts a loving yet skeptical glance on the world of mid-`90s Britain as well as the cultural and literary legacy that continues to haunt, shape, and challenge her. In a voice by turns tender, insightful, and funny, Satterfield brings to life a provocative personal history through fascinating detours into music, popular culture, and literary mothers such as the Brontės, Sylvia Plath, and Angela Carter.
