Description:

A stunningly inventive, deeply moving fiction debut: stories that take us from the slums of Colombia to the streets of Tehran; from New York City to Iowa City; from a tiny fishing village in Australia to a foundering vessel in the South China Sea, in a masterly display of literary virtuosity and feeling. In the magnificent opening story, 0;Love and Honor and Pity and Pride and Compassion and Sacrifice,1; a young writer is urged by his friends to mine his father7;s experiences in Vietnam-and what seems at first a satire of turning one7;s life into literary commerce becomes a transcendent exploration of homeland, and the ties between father and son. 0;Cartagena1; provides a visceral glimpse of life in Colombia as it enters the mind of a fourteen-year-old hit man facing the ultimate test. In 0;Meeting Elise,1; an aging New York painter mourns his body7;s decline as he prepares to meet his daughter on the eve of her Carnegie Hall debut. And with graceful symmetry, the final, title story returns to Vietnam, to a fishing trawler crowded with refugees, where a young woman7;s bond with a mother and her small son forces both women to a shattering decision. Brilliant, daring, and demonstrating a jaw-dropping versatility of voice and point of view,The Boatis an extraordinary work of fiction that takes us to the heart of what it means to be human, and announces a writer of astonishing gifts.
