Named a best book of the year by "The New York Times, The Washington Post, NPR, The Boston Globe, The Christian Science Monitor, " and "The Daily Beast"
A sweeping, continent-spanning story about the love between men and women, between friends, and between citizens and their countries, "All Our Names" is a transfixing exploration of the relationships that define us. Fleeing war-torn Uganda for the American Midwest, Isaac begins a passionate affair with the social worker assigned to him. But the couple's bond is inescapably darkened by the secrets of Isaac's past: the country and the conflict he left behind and the beloved friend who changed the course of his life--and sacrificed everything to ensure his freedom. From acclaimed author Dinaw Mengestu, here is a love story for our time.
