An evocative multigenerational Cuban-American family story of revolution, loss, and family bonds.
Marisol vanished during the Cuban Revolution, disappearing with hardly a trace. Now, shaped by atrocities long-forgotten, her foul-mouthed spirit visits her nephew, Ramon, in modern day New Jersey. Her hope: That her presence will prompt him to unearth their painful family history.
Ramon launches a haphazard investigation into the story of his ancestor, unaware of the forces driving him on his search. Along the way, he falls in love, faces a run-in with a murderous gangster, and uncovers the lives of the lost saints who helped Marisol during her imprisonment.
Join us in the Rare Book Room as the bestselling and beloved Daniel Jose Older sits down with Ashley C. Ford to discuss The Book of Lost Saints, his eagerly anticipated meditation on family, forgiveness, and the violent struggle to be free.
