A clear-eyed, prescient depiction of a possible future that seems all too real today. Vourvoulias writes with complexity and compassion as her characters struggle with injustice, and as they carve out small triumphs amid tragedy and pain. A deeply grounded sense of magic permeates this story, as well as the gift and burden of memory for what has been left behind and might still be rescued or acknowledged.

A page-turner in the best sense, this is a heart-thumping, unflinching look at lives, loves and escapades in an America where fear of the Other has blown away any pretense of democratic ideals.  But where there’s terror and betrayal, there is also love, and courage, and humor.  This is a book for our times.
