"the story becomes an argument for a better way of seeing, which has always struck me as being one of the novel’s better gifts… it demands the reader’s imagination, and by doing so affirms our capacity to live beyond the limited means of our private lives." -- Dinaw Mengestu

A book is held open, pages ready to turn, in African American hands.
