In her newest book Daughters of Empire: A Memoir of a Year in Britain and Beyond, poet and essayist Jane Satterfield writes, “What surprised me most when I settled back in the States was an abundance I’d forgotten: rampant growth, suburban streets who jungles, heat snaking the stunted garden, fledgling vines faint on sticks.”
Though many of the essays in this non-fiction collection take place in mid-90s England, Satterfield, a dual British-American national, successfully taps the vein of American culture and society.
