Description - Hiding in Plain Sight by Nuruddin Farah
A bold new novel that oaugments a body of work worthy of a Nobel Prizeo (Kirkus Reviews), from the internationally acclaimed author of Crossbones a Nuruddin Farah-othe most important African novelist to emerge in the past twenty-five yearso (The New York Review of Books)-returns with a provocative, unforgettable tale about family, freedom, and loyalty. A departure in theme and setting, Hiding in Plain Sight is a profound exploration of the tensions between liberty and obligation, the ways in which gender and sexual orientation define us, and the unintended consequences of the secrets we keep. When Bella, a fashion photographer living in Rome, learns of her beloved half-brother's murder, she travels to Nairobi to care for her niece and nephew. But when their mother resurfaces, reasserting her maternal rights and bringing with her a gale of chaos and confusion that mirrors the deepening political instability in the region, Bella must decide how far she will go to obey the call of sisterly responsibility.
