Set amid the 1999 World Trade Organization protests in Seattle, it’s a fast-paced, raw and absorbing story about conflict and compassion. In his debut novel, Sunil Yapa pairs deep rage with deep humanity. He asks profound questions about the power of empathy in our hyper-connected modern world, about the limits of compassion, and how far we must go for family, for justice, and for love.
