A Girl from Zanzibar is a riveting modern immigration story for a brave, new, and globalized world. Current events, murky international finance, intrigue, and a search for self are played out in the story of Marcella DiSouza. Marcella is a smart, ambitious young woman of Portuguese Indian-Arab background, who follows a dangerous path from her home in Zanzibar to the shadowy business world of London to a teaching position in a small Vermont college.
With a heart-stopping plot, written in spare, luminous and elegant prose A Girl from Zanzibar, is reminiscent of the novels of John Le Carre and Graham Greene.
