Summary
"Deseperanto refines the themes of loss, exile, and return that have consistently informed her work. The title itself is a wordplay combining the Spanish word "esperanto," signifying "hope," and the French "desespoir," meaning "to lose heart." Desesperanto, then, is a universal language of despair--despair of the possibility of a universal language"--Dustjacket
