Culture and Race Explored in New Novel Boundaries by Elizabeth Nunez
Award winning author Elizabeth Nunez will discuss her latest novel, Boundaries, on October 30 at 12:30 p.m. CST on KAZI Book Review on KAZI 88.7 FM. Set in an unnamed Caribbean Island and New York city, Boundaries explores the dynamics of the relationship book editor Anna Sinclair has with her mother Beatrice who was recently diagnosed with cancer back home on the island. While living in the US for almost 20 years, Anna doesn’t feel fully accepted by Americans, and no longer feels the same ties to her country of birth. Listen to the interview live online at www.kazifm.org.
