Description
(Winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award and the Orange Prize) In a country somewhere in South America, at the residence of the vice president, a lavish birthday party is being held in honor of Mr. Hosokawa. Soprano Roxanne Coss has mesmerized the international guests with her singing. It is a perfect evening until a band of gun-wielding terrorists breaks in and takes the entire party hostage, mistakenly hoping to catch the president. Yet this panicked, life-threatening scenario slowly evolves into something quite different, as days turn to weeks and then to months, and terrorists and hostages forge unexpected bonds in this isolated and beautiful place. People from different countries and continents become compatriots in Ann Patchett's lyrical novel, with music their only common language. Friendship, compassion, and the chance for great love lead captors and hostages to forget the real danger that has been set in motion and cannot be stopped. This edition includes a brief profile of Patchett and her own commentary.
