Of Brazilian-Chilean-French descent, fluent in four languages and a traveler to the seven continents, Dailey adapts easily to international subjects. Her ability to listen to people in multiple languages and her passion to share their stories informs her writing from short stories to her travel journal Listening to Pakistan to her Kirkus Review award-winning biographical novel Riko: Seductions of an Artist. Leaving Guanabara is a journey through the lush Brazilian landscape of memory, encompassing World War II and Brazil’s participation, the abrupt loss of mother, motherland and mother tongue, and discoveries that entangle family secrets. Dailey, who will be introduced by Ann Darby, author of The Orphan Game, treats the reader as if these revelations were their own.
