How To Read The Air

Author:

Jonas, fresh from a failed marriage, is desperate to make sense of the ties that have forged him. How can he dream of a future when he can’t make sense of his past? He hits the road, tracing the route that his parents – young Ethiopians in search of an identity as an American couple – took thirty year earlier to Nashville, Tennessee.

In a stunning display of imagination he weaves together a history that takes him from the war-torn Ethiopia of his parents’ youth to a brighter vision of his own life in contemporary America, a story – real or invented- that holds the possibility of reconciliation and redemption.
