Summary "On the eve of Salma's twenty-first birthday, scattered friends and family converge on New York for a celebration organized by Darwish, her obstinate grandfather. Each guest's journey to this fated gathering takes on an unexpected significance, as they find themselves revisiting the choices they have made in life, and rethinking their relationships with one another and the country in which they live. Traveling seamlessly between Cairo and the United States, Embrace on Brooklyn Bridge is a story about how we construct and shift our identities, and about a family's search for home"--Provided by publisher
