From the Publisher
Editors Note Chronicles the ups and downs of a Czech-American family from 1969, when they first arrive in America, to 1996, in a novel that centers on the descent of Elise Blazek, the family's brightest love, and her mother's love for her daughter, who grows distant by the minute. By the author of Brian in Three Seasons.
Annotation Tales of immigrant families tumbling through generations as children and grandchildren join the mainstream are the salt of American literature's earth. Patricia Grossman inverts this formula with RADIANT DAUGHTER, as the latest progeny of a Czech-American family turns her attention to the old world as a scholar specializing in Russian translation. Elise Blazek's search for the literary traditions of the culture that uprooted her ancestors' lives during Soviet occupation reveals a new kind of assimilation story for an America increasingly linked to East as well as West.
