A woman struggles with love, work, and identity in a novel by ';one of the finest and most necessary voices in contemporary American and Caribbean fiction' (Colum McCann, author ofLet the Great World Spin). Anna, a Caribbean American immigrant, is eager to assimilate in her new countrybut she is about to discover that a gap yawns between her and American-born citizens. The head of a specialized imprint at a major publishing house, Anna is soon challenged for her position by an ambitious upstart who accuses her of not really understanding American cultureparticularly African American culture. Her job at stake, Anna turns for advice to her boyfriend, a fellow Caribbean American himself, but even here she finds conflictin this riveting, thoughtful novel about immigration, family dynamics, race, and relationships, in which ';many moments of elegant, overarching insight bind the personal to the collective past' (The New York Times Book Review). ';Spare and transcendent prose... a unique and riveting perspective on Caribbean life as well as immigrant life in general.' The New York Amsterdam News ';If I wore a hat, I'd tip it to novelist Elizabeth Nunez. [Boundaries] is timely and provocativeand it's written with such vivid prose that, despite the bittersweet ending, you'll step away from this refreshing take on contemporary publishing with a smile.' Essence ';In Nunez's latest, the author further explores immigrant life, a life where a hard-working woman can progress up the corporate ladder, buy an apartment in a soon-to-be trendy neighborhood, and still be plagued by outsider's angst. A thoughtful literary novel exploring the shadows of cultural identity and the mirage of assimilation.' Kirkus Reviews ';A quiet, sensitive portrait... This work covers a lot of ground, from mother-daughter and male-female relationships to the tensions between immigrants and the American born.' Library Journal ';Deftly dissects the immigrant experience in light of cultural traditions that impact family roles, professional obligations, and romantic opportunities.' Booklist
