Jacqueline lives on an idyllic Aegean island, but she is no affluent Westerner soaking up the sun on a Mediterranean beach; she is a homeless illegal alien who escaped the horrors of Liberian wars only to live in poverty and hunger in a dank Greek cave. As this young refugee pursues her precarious day-to-day existence, her memory snaps back again and again to her family and lover in the country that she has lost. This haunting new novel by Alexander Maksik (You Deserve Nothing) takes us into the life of a survivor struggling with her past even as she pieces together a present. Editor's recommendation.
