Synopsis

Synopsis

 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.  On an island in Australia's Torres Strait, an enigmatic castaway throws kinks into the local culture and sexual politics.  And in the jungles of Vietnam, four American soldiers undertake a mystical search for a man-eating tiger.  Filled with atmospheric tension, crackling with psychological observation, and evoking masters from Joseph Conrad to Robert Stone, Exiles is a riveting literary experience.
