In her autobiography, Meatless Days, Sara Suleri brings the reader right into her family’s life in Pakistan from two intertwined perspectives. At times she has the eye of a child growing up in Pakistan, at other times she speaks from the more distanced eye of an adult living in the United States. She begins with her adult view which helps ease the reader into her story because it is a perspective closer to our own. Later she moves into descriptions of life in Pakistan with her siblings and grandmother told from a child’s point of view.

Calling it her memoirs might not be completely accurate, because Ms Suleri has stated that not everything in the book actually happened, ie she did make up some of the events.

Suleri approaches these several lives-and her own, as a darker sister-by theme rather than chronology, imaginatively moving from childhood impressions ("My aunts smell like my mother") to dreams to adult perceptions-a bounty of phrases, images, metaphors. And as she travels to England (as a child) and Yale (where she now teaches Third World literature), she never loses her power to astonish.
