OR
Explore what it means to cross borders, both real and imagined. A cast of misfits—young and old, single and coupled, even entire family units—confront startling changes wrought by difficult circumstances or harrowing choices, rendered by Freeman with sensitivity, dignity, and grace. These 11 stories span the world, moving from Maine to Sri Lanka, from Dublin to Philadelphia. Sleeping Alone asks: what is the toll of feeling foreign in one’s land, foreign to others, or foreign to oneself?
