About the author (1989)

Cheri Register often tells people her University of Chicago Ph.D. really stands for "Packinghouse Daughter." The opening chapter of "Packinghouse Daughter" was cited as a Notable Essay in "Best American Essays 1996." Other excerpts have appeared in "Hungry Mind Review, University of Chicago Magazine, " and the book "Is Academic Feminism Dead?" Her work on this memoir has earned a Jerome Travel and Study Grant, a Minnesota State Arts Board Fellowship, and grants from the Loft Literary Center and the Minnesota Historical Society. Her other books include "The Chronic Illness Experience: Embracing the Imperfect Life" (formerly titled "Living with Chronic Illness: Days of Patience and Passion") and ""Are Those Kids Yours?": American Families with Children Adopted from Other Countries." She has published many essays in magazines, literary journals, and anthologies, and is known for her early work in feminist literary criticism and Scandinavian literature. A writer of creative nonfiction, Register now teaches writing at the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis, where she also lives.
