“Having lived in Turkey, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, where our daughter was born, my wife and I are back in the U.S., relearning how to be Americans. What matters? Who are we? Leslie Jamison offers mixed answers in her dazzling essay book, The Empathy Exams. As a Miami native, I like the direction of a good South Florida tale; love is the secret in Roxane Gay's novel Untamed State, which is as haunting in Haiti as when the action moves to Miami-Dade County.”

Nathan Deuel, author of Friday Was the Bomb: Five Years in the Middle East.

Deuel appears at 8 p.m. Tuesday at Books & Books, 265 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables.
