Summary
Zou Lei, a Chinese Muslim of the Uighur tribe, enters the U.S. via Mexico, and makes her way to New York City. Keeping a low profile and employed in a restaurant, she meets Skinner, a veteran of the Iraqi war, who's afflicted with PTSD
Summary
Zou Lei, orphan of the desert, migrates to work in America and finds herself slaving in New York's kitchens. She falls in love with a young man whose heart has been broken in another desert. A new life may be possible if together they can survive homelessness, lockup, and the young man's nightmares, which may be more prophecy than madness
