Summary
In a commune built on utopian principles, life is not as harmonious as the founders intended. After immersing us in life on the island, an unnamed narrator takes us back to Boston to recount the events that brought her here. She and her father are Ethiopian immigrants who mostly keep to themselves. The unofficial king of Boston's Ethiopian community, Ayale is a born hustler; when he turns his attention to the narrator, she feels seen for the first time. Ostensibly a parking lot attendant, Ayale has other projects in the works, and the narrator becomes entangled in Ayale's schemes. By the time the depth of the schemes becomes apparent, she is complicit in something much bigger and darker than she ever imagined
