NOW YOU SEE US: a Novel by Balli Kaur Jaswal

Four Filipina women are hard workers and fast friends who face the realities of domestic work in Singapore.  The author's knack with rollicking conversations and fast-paced daily scenes of friendship, family, work conditions, and murder make this an easy, thoughtful read. Ridiculous, biased presumptions lead to outrageous accusations, betrayal, and pursuit. Restrictions on relationships, space, and free time flow across the page with candor and consequence. The threats, the friendships, the desire to endure could really happen anywhere, couldn't they?  All are welcome to join our discussion at the store on April 27 at 7p.m.  No need to have finished the book to attend!
