Hillary Huber gives a heartfelt performance of this story about a young man's search for identity. Albanian Bujar leaves his communist country after the death of his father, a time when he is also developing an awareness of his own sexuality. Huber creates a steady, kind persona that builds a deep sense of compassion for Bujar as he experiences changes in continents and in his body while searching for a place where he can be himself. Listeners are taken on twin physical journeys that are metaphors for seismic change both geopolitical and personal. Huber gives these important contemporary themes tender treatment. This literary novel and Huber's delivery capture the universality in a young man's quest for belonging. M.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2019]
