NADJA TESICH-TO DIE IN CHICAGO With a gritty and elegiac precision, Nadja Tesich brings vividly to life the immigrant experience in East Chicago. With quick silver wit the story of a young girl crossing the threshold to womanhood unfolds as she learns the bitter trade-off between what is irretrievably lost and what is gained, as she and her family confront the grim reality of living the American dream. -Charles Ruas, Author of, "Conversations with American Writers." Praise for To Die In Chicago As seen through the eyes of an innocent and idealistic 16-year-old immigrant girl from Yugoslavia, a tale of disillusionment, struggle, and resistance in the American heartland of the 1950's. Beautifully told, deeply felt. -Artist and Writer, Rebecca Clare This book surpasses Nadja Tesich's previous brilliant works, Shadow Partisan and Native Land--She is an interesting literary treasure. -Laura Shane Cunningham, author of Sleeping Arrangements Praise for Nadja Tesich and Native Land A vivid, engrossing work of memory and observation. The honesty of the girl's perceptions-particularly those around issues of politics and womanliness-make the writing all the more sympathetic. -Philip Lopate
