A woman in search of herself keeps on turning the kaleidoscope that is memory and life, searching for belonging and purpose, echoing into both past and future in a lyrical, deeply personal confession. Our Voices is a melancholic personal narration of what happened in a given time and place to a young girl and her father in an oppressive system and how their story was carried to the next generation. It is also a warning of what could happen to anyone, anywhere, as well as a scream of indignation against social and political injustice, gender constraints, and historical erasure. Last but not least, it is a book of hope - the hope of integrating familial, historical, and social trauma into a bigger self, through language and nature. Through personal storytelling, including a child perspective, terse poetry, myths, fairy-tales, imagery, social and political criticism, as well as some utopias/manifestos, Our Voices is an overcoming of the persistent horrors of communism and immigration; a book about living in the in-betweens and dreaming ourselves into more than mere survival; an invitation to its readers to bring out their own buried "shameful" family stories, to let them breathe and find resonance in the bigger world. "Radovan's debut family memoir explores intergenerational trauma against the backdrop of postwar Romania... Using diary entries, poems, photographs, and essays, the author cobbles together a family history out of fragments, effectively reflecting the shattered nature of lives under and after authoritarianism... Radovan's writing has a lyrical quality throughout, whether it takes the form of poetry or prose, offering readers an incantatory blend of the remembered, the overheard, and the imagined... A chimeric remembrance that delves into the legacy of Romania's troubled past." - Kirkus Reviews

Bibliotekernes beskrivelse Our Voices is a story of a woman in search of herself that keeps on turning the kaleidoscope that is memory and life over and over again, looking for a meaning that seems to escape her; an echo into both past and future; a lyrical, deeply personal confession.
