Three promising debuts

fruitIngrid Rojas Contreras set her coming-of-age debut, ”Fruit of the Drunken Tree”  in Colombia during the last year of Pablo Escobar’s reign of terror.   They story is seen through the dreamlike voice of seven-year-old Chula.   “Salt Houses” by poet Hala Alyan follows four generations of the Yacoub family through the Palestinian diaspora.  And, in “Ghosted” by Rosie Walsh, love at first sight turns into a puzzling mystery.  After a whirlwind week of romance, new beaux Eddie leaves for a trip, then drops out of contact, leaving Sara to wonder what happened.
