Originally hailing from the Dominican Republic, Julia Alvarez arrived in America with her family more than three decades ago. Having learned English from a kindly nun with the same Spanish-speaking roots, Alvarez began to relish writing poetry and prose in her newly-acquired language. Years later, she is well known in literary circles as a writer of novels and poetry. Her fifth major work, Something to Declare, is a collection of essays reflecting on the writer's and the immigrant's life in America. 300 pages.
