Synopsis

Synopsis

Translated Woman tells the story of an unforgettable encounter between Ruth Behar, a Cuban-American feminist anthropologist, and Esperanza Hernández, a Mexican street peddler. The tale of Esperanza's extraordinary life yields unexpected and profound reflections on the mutual desires that bind together anthropologists and their "subjects."
Praise

A stunning critique and reversal of the received image of the passive and humble Mexican Indian woman. . . . Engrossing reading at the hands of a skillful interpreter. --The New York Times Book Review

"A brave and unusual work. . . . A fascinating portrait of two very different women and their intertwined struggle for identity." --The Boston Globe

"A demanding and intensely satisfying read." --Hispanic Magazine

"Engaging and insightful. . . . [Translated Woman] takes readers deep into a cross-cultural encounter. . . . A valuable and subtle book."--Choice
