This National Book Award finalist weaves together two stories into one gorgeous novel. A young professional confronts the AIDS crisis in 1980s Chicago, as it circles closer and closer, claiming friends, family and lovers. Meanwhile, in 2015, a mother travels to Paris in search of her long-lost daughter who escaped a cult. Both narratives are so wonderfully realistic and immersive that you will feel as if you are living them.
