Abstract:

"A memoir of mothers and daughters, traced through four generations, from Paris to New York and back again ... Nadja Spiegelman's mother exerted a force over reality that was both dazzling and daunting to her daughter. But as Nadja's body changed and "began to whisper to the adults around me in a language I did not understand", their relationship grew tense. Unwittingly, they were replaying a drama from her mother's past. In "Im supposed to protect you from all this" Nadja explores how each generation reshapes the past and how sometimes those who love us best hurt us most. Readers will recognise themselves and their families in this powerful and moving search for truth."--Back cover.
