When Your Voice Tastes Like Home

When Your Voice Tastes Like Home


Edited by Nila Somaia-Carten and Prabhjot Parmar


This collection features the writing of women from places as diverse as Slovakia and Portugal, India and Uruguay, Korea and Kenya, Italy and Iran. They look and think differently. They have distinctive traditions, cultures and history. They speak a world of languages. All of these women are immigrants with unique heritages, who have come to North America in search of a new life. 

In When Your Voice Tastes Like Home these women write about their lives back home, the journey here and the challenges of being an immigrant. Their stories resonate with joy, despair, sadness and strength. These women, while writing sometimes of the past, look to the future with hope and determination. They live here now, and they want the rest of us to know it.
