My New American Life: A Novel by Francine Prose

<p>Lula, a twenty-six-year-old Albanian woman living surreptitiously in New York City on an expiring tourist visa, hopes to make a better life for herself in America. When she lands a job caring for a rebellious high schooler in wealthy, suburban New Jersey, it seems that the American dream may finally be within reach. But things take a sinister turn when Lulas Albanian brothers show up in a black SUV to remind her that all Albanians are familyand that Lulas family has a very serious favor to ask.</p> <p>Set in the aftermath of 9/11,<i>My New American Life</i>offers a biting and darkly humorous portrait of an era when dreams and ideals began to give way to cynicism, fear, and still-resonating questions about what it means to be an American.</p
