Editorial Reviews

Review

"The first novel translated in English by the German novelist and filmmaker Kröger takes place mostly on and near The Spirit of Europe, where an inflatable raft full of 'children of the Black Decade' (Algerian refugees escaping the wreckage of the civil war there) have arrived, hoping for sanctuary in Europe. The ensuing story is built on vignettes featuring various players in the drama... showing how everyone from governments to traffickers to tourists is implicated in the refugee crisis." —Kirkus Reviews

"We get a crash course in history and geopolitics as Kroger dramatizes how the refugees are treated by strangers ranging from tourists to the authorities. Her rich canvas includes sweeping commentary on a range of global hot-button topics, including Assad's Syria and the complicity of policemen in the violence in Gujarat, India. Quick transitions between different points of view keep the story hopping while allowing readers multiple perspectives as the story unfolds. Kroger demonstrates great dexterity in resolving plot twists, even acknowledging the absence of easy solutions." —Booklist
