    Lula, a 26 -year-old Albanian woman living surreptitiously in New York City on an expiring tourist visa, hopes to make a better life for herself in America. When she lands a job as caretaker to Zeke, a rebellious high school senior in suburban New Jersey, it seems that the security, comfort, and happiness of the American dream may finally be within reach. Her new boss, Mister Stanley, an idealistic college professor turned Wall Street executive, assumes that Lula is a destitute refugee of the Balkan wars.

    Catherine says: "A refreshing, creative work of fiction"

    Where does My New American Life rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is among the best novels I've listened to/read. Francine Prose is an intelligent, creative, interesting writer. Her use of the English language and story development is first rate and very refreshing.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed, I related, I wanted to hear more.
