From 2009 National Book Festival brochure: "Although Julia Alvarez was born in New York City, her family moved to the Dominican Republic shortly after birth, where she spent the majority of her childhood. In 1960, when she was 10, her family returned to the United States, fleeing the Dominican Republic because of her father's involvement in an unsuccessful attempt to overthrow the dictator Rafael Trujillo. Alvarez calls herself an American, yet her writing bridges the realms of Latina and American culture."
