Frontieres Sans Frontieres

Front Cover
Samuel French, Incorporated, 2018 - Adolescence - 68 pages

Here, at the corner of a country that feels both foreign and familiar, three orphaned, stateless youth have built a simple life out of recreation and mischief-making. Their world is rocked as a parade of immodest strangers slowly invade, offering gifts of language, medicine, art, and commerce. As the lure of development blurs their beliefs, life and landscape mutate, threatening their long-held values, community, and humanity. In a comic spectacle to challenge the pretense of altruism and civilization, Frontieres Sans Frontieres asks what happens when generosity looks a lot like self-interest? How to comprehend when the promise of language matures to the tyranny of words? Who wins and who loses in a war to hold on to the people and places we love?
