Dorfman's first major impact in English-language works was How to Read Donald Duck about American cultural imperialism.
Monday, October 3, 7 p.m.
Ariel Dorfman
Feeding on Dreams: Confessions of an Unrepentant Exile (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $27)
In his powerful memoir of politics and exile, the Chilean novelist, essayist, playwright, and human rights activist looks back to 1973. After the military overthrew Allende, Dorfman stayed one step ahead of death squads, moving from his homeland to Buenos Aires, Paris, Amsterdam, and finally the U.S, where he is now a professor of literature and Latin American studies at Duke.
