About this title:

Synopsis: "Moving, deeply introspective and honest" (Publishers Weekly) reflections on exile and memory from five award-winning authors. All of the authors inLetters of Transit have written award-winning works on exile, home, and memory, using the written word as a tool for revisiting their old homes or fashioning new ones. Now in paperback are five newly commissioned essays offering moving distillations of their most important thinking on these themes. Andre Aciman traces his migrations and compares his own transience with the uprootedness of many moderns. Eva Hoffman examines the crucial role of language and what happens when your first one is lost. Edward Said defends his conflicting political and cultural allegiances. Novelist Bharati Mukherjee explores her own struggle with assimilation. Finally, Charles Simic remembers his thwarted attempts at "fitting in" in America.

About the Author: Andr Aciman, recipient of the 1995 Whiting Writer's Award for his highly acclaimed memoir Out of Egypt, lives in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York. Eva Hoffman, who received the Academy of American Arts and Letters Jean Stein Award for Lost in Translation, lives in London. Bharati Mukherjee, National Book Critics Circle Award winner for The Middleman and Other Stories, lives in Berkeley, California. Edward Said, author of Orientalism and Cultural Imperalism, lives in New York City. Charles Simic, a MacArthur Foundation Fellow and Pulitzer Prize winner, lives in New Hampshire.
