Maybe there is no true story, only imagined stories, vague collections of what we saw and what we heard, what we felt and what we thought.
so beautiful and so much truth in this - intrigued to learn more about the book
It's historical fiction based on one sentence about a black servant in one of the 16th century Spanish expeditions to the New World. Episodic, dense, richly imagined. Laila Lalami is a wise person; this is the second book of hers I have read and admire her work highly.
