Description
Summary:Women Writing Cloth: Migratory Fictions in the American Imaginary argues that cloth-work serves as a textual signifier of mobility and preservation, constituting a revolt against a devaluation of cultural heritage and a distrust of the self. Bona develops a new framework for examining analogies between weaving and storytelling, the flow of needlework across place and time, women's labor and status, and the power of cloth-work as both means and metaphor for cultural reintegration across borders.
