"Again and again, something in one’s own life, or in the life around one,  will seem so important that one cannot bear for it to pass into oblivion.  There must never come a time, the writer feels, when people do not know about this."

The Edge of the World

Chomumbhar, a small republic on the Indian Ocean, is unknown to the rest of the world until President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy arrive on a state visit to the island, in 1962. Chomumbhar's colonial past, its autocratic government, and its ensuing alliance with America over four decades mark the lives of its citizens.

Liberty Landing

A 2016 Finalist for the PEN/Bellwether Prize for Socially Engaged Fiction -- narrates the American Experience of the 21st century through the lives of a polycultural cast of natives, immigrants, and refugees in Azyl Park—a town in the Midwest. After Angeline Lalande, a journalist and historian, unearths the real meaning of the name, “Azyl,” conferred on the town in the 1800s by immigrant-hating politicians, the town elders begin the act of renaming it.
