Two stories intersect in this debut novel by Lisa Halliday that ended up on many "best of 2018" lists.

Alice, a young editor in New York, begins an affair with the much older, prize-winning writer Ezra. Amar, an Iraqi-American, is being detained at Heathrow on his way to Kurdistan. Asymmetry poses questions about the limits of imagination and empathy. Can we understand each other across lines of race, gender, nationality, and power? Sign up and get a copy of the book at the Readers Services Desk.
