Gaude, Laurent: ELDORADO

Captain Salvatore Piracci has sailed along the Italian coast for the last twenty years, intercepting boats with clandestine immigrants who have risked everything in the hope of reaching the new Eldorado. But when Piracci is confronted by a woman haunted by the death of her son, killed during an illegal crossing, he is forced to question the validity of his border-patrolling mission. Meanwhile, two brothers prepare to leave Sudan and make the dangerous passage to Europe. Separated mid-voyage, Suleiman, the youngest, vows to make it to the promised land and find the means to reunite with his ailing elder brother. In this spellbinding fable about lack, persistence, and hope, grounded in the often-tragic reality of modern-day immigration, bestselling author Laurent Gaude offers a unique portrait of the individuals who compromise their dreams and endanger their lives in search of a better existence.
