Overview

Others of My Kind: A Novel by James Sallis

At age eight, Jenny Rowan was abducted and kept for two years in a box beneath her captor's bed. Eventually she escaped and, after living for eighteen months on scraps at the local mall, was put into the foster care system. Suing for emancipation at age sixteen, she became a legal adult. Now she works as a production editor for the local public TV station, and is one of the world's good people.

One evening she returns home to find a detective waiting for her. Though her records are sealed, he somehow knows her story. He asks if she can help with a young woman who, like her many years before, has been abducted and traumatized.

Initially hesitant, Jenny decides to get involved, reviving buried memories and setting in motion an unexpected interaction with the president herself. Brilliantly spare and compact as are all of James Sallis's novels, set in a near future of political turmoil, Others of My Kind is a story of how we shape ourselves by what happens to us, and of how the human spirit, whatever horrors it undergoes, will not be put down.
