GRACE TALUSAN

Bitch: A Feminist Response to Pop Culture - - DISPATCH FROM JAPAN - —LISA FAC­TORA-BORCHERS, EDI­TO­RIAL DI­REC­TOR

Grace Talusan writes un­com­mon sto­ries about fam­ily, dis­place­ment, iden­tity, and all the un­sayable things that come from be­ing born in a coun­try that is not your home and ex­plor­ing the coun­try you call home in which you do not al­ways be­long. Talusan’s port­fo­lio is a pass­port to im­prob­a­ble sur­vival. She is the re­cent win­ner of the 2017 Rest­less Books Prize for New Im­mi­grant Writ­ing for Nonfiction, and when a writer li­censes her­self to of­fer this kind of bor­der­less ex­plo­ration, the gift is to all who wan­der.
