Description

nbsp;In this startling new work of fiction, the acclaimed author of A Rumor of War creates three powerful dramas of dislocation, following his characters places they have no business being and into situations that are vastly--and dangerously--beyond their depth. In the Connecticut suburbs, a motherless young man suddenly becomes the beneficiary of a wealthy older couple, whose generosity has unsuspected motives and a sinister price.nbsp; On an island in Australia's Torres Strait, an enigmatic castaway throws kinks into the local culture and sexual politics.nbsp; And in the jungles of Vietnam, four American soldiers undertake a mystical search for a man-eating tiger.nbsp; Filled with atmospheric tension, crackling with psychological observation, and evoking masters from Joseph Conrad to Robert Stone, Exiles is a riveting literary experience.
