From The Critics
Kaiser (Univ. of Paris-Sud) provides a welcome new perspective on the Franco-American relationship in this collection of oral histories of French war brides....Kaiser's introduction and conclusion contextualize and analyze these lives, emphasizing questions of biculturalism and cultural misunderstandings rather than issues of gender. As they look back on their long lives, these women share memories of how they assimilated to US culture while never losing their sense of being French. Recommended.
