Eitan Green, a neurosurgeon living in a small city in Israel, is out driving his SUV in the desert late at night when he accidentally hits and kills an illegal Eritrean immigrant.  He leaves the scene, returns to his home where his wife, a police detective,  and his two sons are sound asleep, and unknowingly sets off a series of unexpected, sometimes dangerous, events.  From that night on, Eitan's life is one lie after another.  And each new happening means he has to cover his tracks more scrupulously.

Waking Lions has it all-great writing, suspense, fleshed-out characters and moral dilemmas.  Furthermore, it brings up themes of guilt, the Mideast conflict, illegal immigrants and how well do we truly know ourselves or others.  I eagerly await Gundar-Goshen's second novel.

Ms. Ng's second novel  is an easy read with a lot of depth.  It takes place in the 1990's in Shaker Heights, Ohio,  a liberal suburb of Cleveland.  It is the story of two families.  The Richardsons are typical of their suburb.  The father is a lawyer, the mother is a journalist, oldest sister is beautiful and bright, oldest son handsome and athletic, younger son a sensitive intellectual and youngest daughter is a moody loner.  The Richardsons own a duplex on the "other side" of Shaker Heights and they rent one floor to Mia Warren and her adolescent daughter, Pearl.  Mia is a vagabond artist with few possessions and a mysterious past.  How these families interact is the crux of Little Fires Everywhere.
