Description
Once in a rare while a novel comes along that succeeds in taking us away from home in order to show us what it means to be an American. The saviors of this brilliantly witty and wise novel set in a Vietnamese refugee camp off the coast of Malaysia are, among others, a pair of contrasting Americans: the outsized, outrageous, and highly opinionated Reuben Gilt and the thoughtful if slightly befuddled Bobbi Porkpie Sortini. In this place that has the earmarks of a feudal kingdom, Reuben and Porkpie find themselves fomenting rebellion with results that are, to say the least, unpredictable.

Paul Eggers writes with a lyricism rooted in the mud and smoke of camp life, an authenticity that can come only from personal acquaintance with such a life, and a sense of humor that can come only from surviving it. Saviors combines the clash of cultures, the lure of the exotic, and the brutal reality of a refugee's life into a memorable human comedy.
