Love Songs for a Lost Continent
"This is the book we needed to read yesterday... a book we will still be reading tomorrow."
- Porochista Khakpour, author of Sick and Sons and Other Flammable Objects
From the glittering heat of India's Pink City to the palm-lined streets of Silicon Valley and the vanilla-bean fields of Madagascar, Anita Felicelli's debut collection delivers a dazzling array of precisely drawn characters searching for identity in the seemingly narrow spaces of their everyday lives.
Imbued with magic, Felicelli's stories center on first- and second-generation Tamil Americans--immigrants, daughters, and lovers exploring what it means to lose and to love, to continually reinvent oneself while honoring the personal histories and lost continents that shape us all.
