The Bones of Barry Knight
For fans of The Beekeeper of Aleppoby Cristy Lefteri,Voices of the Lostby Hoda Barakat, Jeanine Cummins,and Elif Shafak
In a remote refugee camp, many diverse lives collide.
A tale of grief and resilience against the greatest odds, The Bones of Barry Knight asks how we can better care for one another on a global scale.
Having lost her father and brother, Saleema lives in a refugee camp, with books as her only escape. When she hears that someone famous will be coming to visit, she hopes they’ll be able to answer the many questions she has about the living conditions of the people around her.
Despite a looming civil war, many lives converge at the camp – a charity org CEO, her half-Palestinian partner, a journalist in search of the truth to honor her recently deceased adoptive mother, a volunteer that wants to confront Barry Knight for a hit-and-run that killed his girlfriend, and the aging rockstar himself, alcoholic and lonely, hoping to clear his reputation with some good press. Years later, they all find a way to tell their stories.
