"In the linked stories of Kasia Jaronczyk's Lemon, the lives of Basia and her family are seen through a kaleidoscopic lens that follows them over twenty years, from communist Poland, to their new home in Canada then back to Poland to make sense of everything that has happened in the interim. It is an immigrant's story of cultural change from one continent to another but it's also a coming of age story of a young girl who struggles with her awakening sexuality in an environment where corporal punishment is the norm and every man, even from her own family, can become a sexual predator. Over time, the experiences of Basia and her mother Magda shift and refract the perspectives through which we view younger and older women as they as they age and as their cultural and material circumstances change."-- Provided by publisher.
