Complex Legacies of War, Abuse, and Immigration: Nayomi Munaweera’s Island of a Thousand Mirrors and What Lies Between Us

“Where Island of a Thousand Mirrors shone a light on the horrors of war, What Lies Between Us spotlights the equally horrific specter of sexual abuse through a woman’s damaged psyche, and all the damage that is caused by denying survivors the language by which they can share their abuse without being shamed or blamed.” My 22nd article for HuffPost, published in January 2016.

America Down the Rabbit Hole and Through the Looking Glass

“I never would have imagined the airplane that repatriated me to the United States in 2011 — after a decade in Europe — would end up being a less-benign alternate portal down into Alice’s rabbit hole where the impossible is possible and the absurd becomes reality.” My 19th article for HuffPost, published in December 2015.
