Críticas: "Elizabeth Nunez's "Not for Everyday Use" is that powerful and essential work which redefines our understanding of the experience of emigration and its impact on families. It is, quite simply, one of the most important books I've read about the intellectual and emotional work we must do to understand our forebears' lives in the context of history and colonialism."
--Louise DeSalvo, author of "Writing as a Way of Healing: How Telling Our Stories Transforms Our Lives"

"Elizabeth Nunez, in a clear, unsentimental, hard-hitting, and direct voice, skillfully structures the story of a mixed-race Portuguese and Trinidadian Roman Catholic family around the preparations for her mother's funeral...At the heart of this story is the relationship between a mother and a daughter, a daughter who leaves home as a young girl to continue her education and make her life in the United States of America. Some of the most poignant moments are those in which the author describes her feelings of belonging and not belonging to 'home.' This is a story that will speak both to Caribbean people 'at home' and those who have left to make their home elsewhere."
--Lawrence Scott, author of "Light Falling on Bamboo"

"At the heart of this memoir are the moving portraits of parents. Elizabeth Nunez, in a clear, unsentimental, hard-hitting, and direct voice, skillfully structures the story of a mixed-race Portuguese and Trinidadian Roman Catholic family around the preparations for her mother's funeral, exploring their ancestry, their survival, and success in a British colony during its journey toward independence and beyond, finding a way through its complex racial history. Also, at the heart of this story is the relationship between a mother and a daughter, a daughter who leaves home as a young girl to continue her education and make her life in the United States of America. Some of the most poignant moments are those in which the author describes her feelings of belonging and not belonging to 'home.'

"Elizabeth Nunez is one of the finest and most necessary voices in contemporary American and Caribbean fiction."
--Colum McCann, author of "Let the Great World Spin"
"Ms. Nunez has always had the power to get to the essence of what makes human beings take right and wrong turns. With "Boundaries," a reader will find that she, again, does not disappoint."
--Edward P. Jones, author of "The Known World"

--Edwidge Danticat
Critical Praise for "Bou

"Elizabeth Nunez has written a book about love: love of family, love of place, love of literature, and even the love of human flaws. "Not for Everyday Use" manages to be a memoir rich with tenderness that doesn't shy away from pain and loss. Reading this book was like sitting with a dear friend for a long conversation and only later realizing I'd been in the presence of a true artist. It's not easy to sound casual but attain the profound yet somehow Nunez pulls it off, page after page."
--Victor LaValle, author of "The Devil in Silver"
