"Seventeen years after fleeing the revolutionary Ethiopia that claimed his father's life, Sepha Stephanos is a man still caught between two existencies: the one he left behind aged nineteen, and the new life he has forged in Washington DC. Sepha spends his days in a sort of limbo: quietly running his grocery store into the ground, revisiting the Russian classics, and toasting the old days with his friends Kenneth and Joseph, themselves emigrants from Africa. But when a white woman named Judith moves next door with her only daughter, Naomi, Sepha's life seems on the verge of change..."

This is a beautiful, melancholy story and wonderfully written. I'm not surprised it won the Guardian First Book Award in 2007.
