During the long farewell of her mother's dying, Patricia Hampl revisits her midwestern girlhood. Daughter of a debonair Czech father, whose floral work gave him entree to St. Paul society, and a distrustful Irishwoman with an uncanny ability to tell a tale, Hampl remained, primarily and passionately, a daughter well into adulthood. She traces the arc of faithfulness and struggle that comes with that role-from the postwar years past the turbulent sixties. At the heart of The Florist's Daughter is the humble passion of people who struggled out of the Depression into a better chance, not only for themselves but for the common good. Widely recognized as one of our most masterful memoirists, Patricia Hampl has written an extraordinary memoir that is her most intimate, yet most universal, work to date. This transporting work will resonate with readers of Francine du Plessix Gray's Them: A Memoir of Parents and Jeannette Wall's The Glass Castle.

A series of vignettes from
The Florists Daughter appeared in an essay titled
Lilac Nostalgia in Five
Points Journal in Spring 2003
