IN THE DARKROOM: SUSAN FALUDI

Pulitzer-prize winning journalist and author of the groundbreaking Backlash Susan Faludi has now produced a memoir. In 2004, she received an email – with the subject line “Changes” – from her long-estranged Hungarian father telling her he had undergone gender-reassignment surgery and changed his name from Steven to Stephanie. In the Darkroom is the sometimes funny, often painful tale of a father and daughter reacquainted in interesting circumstances, set against the backdrop of resurgent extremism in Europe. Faludi charts a complex negotiation of identity and history across the span of a decade. She speaks with Noelle McCarthy.
