Annotation:
In this haunting romance, Canadian writer Kim Echlin evokes the complex feelings which develop between a disillusioned teenage girl and a survivor of the Cambodian genocide who find one another in a jazz club in Montreal. Anne's mother died when she was very young, and though she loves her father dearly, she has always felt that something was missing from her life. Serey knows all too well about such absence, having lost touch with his family since he barely escaped the brutal reign of the Khmer Rouge regime in his homeland. The two lonely souls provide one another some temporary comfort, but when Serey feels compelled to return to Cambodia, It seems likely that their fragile relationship will add to their life's regrets, rather than their relief.

Praise

"[E]xquisite....THE DISAPPEARED contains many elements that might doom a lesser book: the deaths of multiple characters...; an unabashedly effusive love story...; and, as a setting, the bones and ashes of the Cambodian genocide....Yet the book manages to be spellbinding....Love and death pulsate through its pages." - Dalia Sofer 01/10/2010

'[A]stonishing....[Anne's] journey takes us inside the sealed world of Cambodia's nightmare where, at every turn, 'memory flips its dark belly to the surface.' The power of Anne's voice, however, and the sheer beauty of Echlin's writing - as lyrical as it is honest - keeps us reading through the pain." - Anna Mundow 02/28/2010
