Daisy Hernandez - A Cup of Water Under My Bed: A Memoir

Sunday, October 5, 2014 at 1:00 pm

A Colombian mother, a Cuban father, and a coming-of-age in New Jersey during the 1980s, make Hernández a true American. Her memoir starts with English lessons and the election of Reagan as president; she continues a deft interweaving of personal and public events as she defies her aunts’ traditional life-plan for her, coming out as a bisexual and heading off to work at The New York Times just as the paper faced a plagiarism scandal.
