"Zolbrod writes with authority about Thailand in prose so beautiful I found myself conflicted between savoring every word and rushing to see what would happen next." --Ladette Randolph, author of A Sandhills Ballad
From the Back Cover
is an absorbing story of love and betrayal set in Southeast Asia, a thriller of trafficing bodies--both human and beast--across international lines, and a perceptive foray into the dark powers beyond our control. It is a story that asks questions about home and happiness, while deftly taking us into a society's underworld where ethics are eclipsed by desperation, lust, and greed."
--Shipa Agarwal, author of Haunting Bombay
"From the first page to the last, Zoe Zolbrod's Currency
had me hooked. I loved the boldness of the voice, the visceral and intoxicating landscape, the engrossing and masterfully woven story. Currency is a thrilling and unforgettable debut, and Zolbrod is a brilliant new voice that is sure to be with us for many years to come."
--Laura van den Berg, author of What the World Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us
