"In Mirarse de Frente, Gornick turns the memory of her experience as a waitress in the Castkills not only into a bittersweet approach to youthful desire and summer jobs, but into an indelible contact with class and gender inequalities. Her journey as a visiting professor at various American universities helps her draw a wonderful and tragicomic X-ray of the academic landscape as a torture for the spirit: isolated communities, with their rites and quarrels, with their peculiar dynamics of solitude and sociability where the soul grows moldy surrounded of beings only apparently related. In these irresistible vignettes, Gornick once again offers us the singular gaze - brave and fierce, empathetic and always in the face - with which she faces the world."--Amazon.com
