Longing to Belong

Fugitive Visions: An Adoptee’s Return to Korea by Jane Jeong Trenka (Graywolf)


| September-October, 2009


Jane Jeong Trenka’s potent, moving memoir Fugitive Visions explores the interior and exterior landscapes of a Korean-born adoptee who chooses to move back to her native country. Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev’s Visions Fugitives, a series for piano, inspires the mode for her literary journey, which is articulated through vivid prose pieces that are lyrical, provocative, sensuous, and complex. Through it all, Trenka’s story thoroughly engages. Her insights into the fears, joys, and contradictions of the transnational adoptive experience challenge and redefine notions of belonging.
