Old Gloves: A 20th Century Saga
ISBN: 1933126167 Fractal Edge Press. 2005 Badikian, one Chicago's most prominent Latina writers and lecturers, tells in her first novel the story of one family's decades-long journey across three continents, from the horrific death march to rid Turkey of unwanted foreigners, through the South American childhood of the novelist's persona, to the nostalic farewell as the parents as the return to Greece and leave their Chicago and their daughter, who in the frame of the story is writing down the family stories. The writing is spare and uncompromising, but the simple style shows its power to convey heart-wrenching emotional content. This is a quiet masterpiece of careful and affective writing.
