In Radiant Daughter, award-winning novelist Patricia Grossman follows a Czech-American family for twenty-seven years, beginning in suburban Chicago in 1969 and ending in Brooklyn, in seaside "Little Odessa," in 1996. Though the novel begins as a traditional assimilation story-- immigrant parents, "native" children, and the conflicts one might expect--it evolves into a highly particular and harrowing tale surrounding the descent of Elise Blazek, the family's brightest star. Radiant Daughter is also a story of translation--between generations, from the Czech of Irena and Stepan, to the "American" of the children, and finally to the Russian that is Elise's academic specialty.
