Synopsis

An ambitious young man struggles to define himself and his future while his Caribbean homeland plunges into a violent revolution, in a novel that recalls Ann Patchett’s Bel Canto and Kazuo Ishiguro’s Remains of the Day: Hopwood Award-winning writer Christopher Hebert’s The Boiling Season. A passionate, intimate exploration of one man’s loss of innocence and reclamation of identity, this compassionate and compellingly character-driven novel will speak to readers of Barabara Kingsolver and J. M. Coetzee, as Hebert’s illuminating and visceral portrayal of a popular insurrection against an all-powerful dictator—a backdrop that echoes events in Haiti—beautifully translates the struggles of our contemporary world into a work of soaring and unforgettable literary fiction.
