My Broken Language

A Memoir

«<p> <strong>INDEPENDENT BEST COMING-OF-AGE STORY 2021</strong> </p> <p>‘Flawless … In the moments after I finished reading, first came the aphasia of wonder at a book that exceeds you’ – <strong>New York Times</strong></p> <p>‘This electrifying memoir, which is her first book, brings together the threads of her Philadelphia upbringing as the daughter of a Puerto Rican mother and Jewish father, never quite fitting in and trying to find her place in the world. Part coming-of-age story and part lyrical tale of the women she grew up with, this is a wonderful book about finding your voice, and telling the stories that helped to build you as a person.’ <strong>THE INDEPENDENT</strong></p> <p>‘Quiara Hudes is in her own league. Her sentences will take your breath away. <strong>How lucky we are to have her telling our stories</strong>.' – <strong>LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA</st»
