Araceli is a live-in maid who wakes up one morning to discover that her employers have abandoned their Los Angeles house and, more distressingly, their two young boys. Suddenly left with two young charges and no information about their parents' whereabouts, she follows the single available clue: an old photograph of their grandfather who, presumably, lives in central L.A. What begins a bus trip search for an unknown old man becomes, in Héctor Tobar's capable hands, the occasion of a panoramic novel about the rich complexities of one great American city. A subtle, endearing large-scale work.
