Abstract:

Life In Three Houses is a memoir that explores the history of the women on the maternal side of my family. The book chronicles my grandmother's memories of her life in occupied France, beginning when her father won the 1936 French National Lottery and built the house which would later be seized by Nazi forces, and continues with her emigration to America and explores her life as a mother before the narrative shifts focus to retell the story of her youngest daughter--and my mother--Michelle. Their stories are juxtaposed with vignettes of my personal experiences exploring my family history and what it means to be a woman in my maternal lineage. Through the book's disjointed structure and weaving together of narratives, I attempt to find a balance between reporting fact-based information and creating nonfiction through my meditations on the excavation of memory and the subjectivity of perception.
