One day, a young couple recently arrived from war-torn Ethiopia set off on a road trip, looking for their new identity as an American family. Thirty years later, their son sets off on a journey of his own, retracing the steps of his parents while trying to make sense of the cultures and generations that shaped him. Mengestu weaves together the tales of parents and son with delicate precision, establishing himself as a great new literary voice.
