Summary, Etc. "Sleeping Alone is a collection of rich and evocative stories about what it means to cross borders, both real and imagined. These stories look closely at the experiences of people as they try to make sense of new places ranging from Maine to Sri Lanka, and from Dublin to Philadelphia. The families who inhabit these stories-husbands and wives, brothers and sisters-must find their way among the unfamiliar; forced to reconcile the homes and identities that they left with the lives they live now. At once sprawling and intimate, Sleeping Alone asks: What is the toll of feeling foreign in one's land, foreign to others, or foreign to oneself? Ru Freeman, author of the novel On Sal Mal Lane, is capturing an intimate account of a child's life in Sri Lanka, or the life of an immigrant staying in Dublin, she renders the complex circumstances of her characters' lives with dignity and grace. With a light touch and a real sensitivity to the nuances of human interaction, Freeman offers a fresh look at the ways people are ever more globally intertwined, and the ways we all look for home no matter where we are"-- Provided by publisher.
