Vivian Gornick in conversation with Eduardo Rabasa

Querétaro 2018, 

Vivian Gornick is a greatly admired writer and journalist. In her day, she was one of the pioneers in writing about the metaphorical meaning of what it means to be foreign: that which is somewhere between “being a part of something and alienated from it at the same time.” In her memoir Fierce Attachments, recently published in Spanish, Gornick powerfully evokes the Jewish-American generation of her childhood and also reflects on the sexist and anti-Semitic humiliations constant in US society of that time. In conversation with the writer and editor Eduardo Rabasa.
