The story of Joesph, a Congolese refugee, whose disturbing past unexpectedly comes to weigh upon him. Joseph’s internal struggle to make peace with the ghosts of war comes increasingly to contrast with his suburban, almost bucolic, family life in Canada. “Most impressive is the beauty of the writing, the economy of phrase, and the attention to detail.” Tonu Naelapea.
