From the wildly acclaimed Nani Power, a new novel of love, lust, discovery, and the strangely interwoven tales of three lonely inhabitants of an old Washington, D.C. hotel. "This is all about love," begins The Sea of Tears. Infused with the sensuality and smarts that have established Nani Power as one of our most exciting young writers, this otherworldly novel delves into the tangled relationships and hidden worlds of people brought together-and torn apart-under extraordinary circumstances. One man, Jedra, has fled his native Iraq and taken a technician job at The Renaissance Hotel, where he works in the boiler room and pines for the love of Phyllis, a front desk clerk who mysteriously remembers Heaven. Khouri, an Iranian engineer with no living family, attends a conference at the hotel only to meet Patricia, a single mom employed there as a maid. And in the penthouse apartment, Daniel Espirito entertains the delusion that he's actually living in Brazil-until the hotel chef, Leslie, comes knocking on his door. Harking back to the ancient tales of The Arabian Nights but with a decidedly modern eye towards the clashing and mingling of cultures, this is Power's most ambitious work to date, and an enchanting invitation to take seriously the mysterious desires of one's heart.
