From the Publisher:
RECIPIENT of a PEN citation, Martha Albrand Award for non-fiction and a Pushcart Prize for the essay "More Room". The title essay, "Silent Dancing", has been included in the 1991 Best American Essays. Silent Dancing was selected as one of The New York Public Library's 1991 Books for the Teen Age. Silent Dancing is Judith Ortiz Cofer's first collection of prose writing: personal recollections of her childhood. The daughter of a Navy man, Ortiz Cofer was born in Puerto Rico and spent her childhood shuttling between the warm island of her birth and New Jersey, where her father was stationed. The themes of female conditioning and feminine roles, culture shock and immigration are heated deftly throughout the book, which also includes poems that lyrically elaborate the narrative.
