Summary
A woman washes ashore in Sicily. She has come from north Africa to find her son, taken from her when he was just days old by his father and stolen away to Berlin. With nothing but her maid?s uniform and a knife stashed in a plastic bag, she relies on strangers, some generous, some exploiting, to guide her passage north. These strangers tell of their encounters with a quiet, mysterious woman in a blue coat, each account a different view of the truth, a different truth. And slowly these fragments of a life piece together to create a spellbinding story of the courage of a mother and the versions of truth we create to accommodate our lives. Haunting and beautiful, Hand Me Down World is simply unforgettable
