Описание: In 1959 Virginia, the lives of two girls on opposite sides of the battle for civil rights will be changed forever
Sarah Dunbar is one of the first black students to attend the previously all-white Jefferson High School. An honors student at her old school, she is put into remedial classes, spit on and tormented daily.
Linda Hairston is the daughter of one of the town's most vocal opponents of school integration. She has been taught all her life that the races should be kept "separate but equal."
Forced to work together on a school project, Sarah and Linda must confront harsh truths about race, power and the fact that they may be falling for one another.
Boldly realistic and emotionally compelling, "Lies We Tell Ourselves" is a brave and stunning novel about finding truth amid the lies, and finding your voice even when others are determined to silence it."

Winner, Body and Embodiment Award presented by the American Sociological Association
Imagine yourself without a face—the task
seems impossible. The face is a core feature of our physical identity. Our face
is how others identify us and how we think of our ‘self’. Yet, human faces are
also functionally essential as mechanisms for communication and as a means of
eating, breathing, and seeing. For these reasons, facial disfigurement can
endanger our fundamental notions of self and identity or even be life threatening,
at worse. Precisely because it is so difficult to conceal our faces, the
disfigured face compromises appearance, status, and, perhaps, our very way of
being in the world.
In Saving Face, sociologist Heather Laine
Talley examines the cultural meaning and social significance of interventions
aimed at repairing faces defined as disfigured. Using ethnography,
participant-observation, content analysis, interviews, and autoethnography,
Talley explores four sites in which a range of faces are “repaired:” face
transplantation, facial feminization surgery, the reality show Extreme Makeover, and the international charitable
organization Operation Smile,. Throughout, she considers how efforts focused on
repair sometimes intensify the stigma associated with disfigurement. Drawing
upon experiences volunteering at a camp for children with severe burns, Talley also
considers alternative interventions and everyday practices that both challenge
stigma and help those seen as disfigured negotiate outsider status.
Talley delves into the promise and
limits of facial surgery, continually examining how we might understand
appearance as a facet of privilege and a dimension of inequality. Ultimately,
she argues that facial work is not simply a conglomeration of reconstructive
techniques aimed at the human face, but rather, that appearance interventions
are increasingly treated as lifesaving work. Especially at a time when
aesthetic technologies carrying greater risk are emerging and when
discrimination based on appearance is rampant, this important book challenges
us to think critically about how we see the human face.
