Arranged in three parts, ‘Kant’s Little Prussian Head and Other Reasons Why I Write’ opens with Claire’s most personal essays – reflections on a childhood divided between cultures, and between dueling models of womanhood. It is here, in these early years, that we see the seeds of Messud’s inquiry into the precarious nature of girlhood, the role narrative plays in giving shape to a life and the power of language.
