Where I'm From
Does Not Exist
As the child of centuries of Serbian displacement, now raising her own daughter in the United States, Ana Preger Hart cannot help but be obsessed with the elusive concept of home. In eleven disarmingly direct personal essays, she unpacks generations of family history to find the key to her own life as an immigrant. From her surprisingly magical childhood in communist Belgrade to the civil conflict that sent her abroad as an adolescent, from her initial experiences in the U.S. as a foreign exchange student in the rural South to her experiences as a lonely new mother in Baltimore, Where I’m From Does Not Exist suggests that a book can itself be a home, a lodging for the stories that travel with us no matter where we go.
