Summary
Alice, a young editor living in New York City during the early days of the Iraq War, begins a surprising and tender affair with the famous older writer Ezra Blazer. Locked in a holding room at Heathrow Airport in late 2008, the practical economist Amar, raised in Brooklyn but on his way to visit his brother in Kurdistan, is interrogated by immigration officials and reflects on his past. Years later still, a BBC journalist conducts an interview with Blazer about life, love, and legacy. How do these moments connect? How do these characters impact one another's lives?
Summary
Explores the imbalances that drive dramatic human relations, tracing the overlapping stories of a young American editor's relationship with a famous older writer during the early years of the Iraq War, and an Iraqi-American man who is detained by immigration officers in Heathrow
