A fascinating story of the loss of home ownership and repossion
entangled in the bureaucracy. The home was purchased by a foreign General new to this country ; becoming so entangled in the process that the totally unexpected ending took your breath away.

When I started reading this book...I didn't care for it...but found that I was soon empathizing/sympathizing with whatever character (except the cop) was in the chapter I was reading. I still wasn't sure I really enjoyed the book when I finished it...but it has hung with me for 5 years. Often I'll read what I consider a great book, but it fades from memory except perhaps the title. Not so with The House of Sand and Fog.

"Review" by , "A mixture of classical tragedy perfectly imbued with film noir...the work of a writer who is the real thing."
"Review" by , "A page-turner with a beating heart."
"Synopsis" by , NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

In this riveting novel of almost unbearable suspense, three fragile yet determined people become dangerously entangled in a relentlessly escalating crisis. Colonel Behrani, once a wealthy man in Iran, is now a struggling immigrant willing to bet everything he has to resotre his family's dignity. Kathy Nicolo is a troubled young woman whose house is all she has left, and who refuses to let her hard-won stability slip away from her. Sheriff Lester Burdon, a married man who finds himself falling in love with Kathy, becomes obsessed with helping her fight for justice.

Drawn by their competing desires to the same small house in the California hills and doomed by their tragic inability to understand one another, the three converge in an explosive collision course. Combining unadorned realism with profound empathy, House of Sand and Fog marks the arrival of a major new voice in American fiction.
