The first section, “Folly,” tells the story of Alice, a young American editor, and her relationship with the famous and much older writer Ezra Blazer. A tender and exquisite account of an unexpected romance that takes place in New York during the early years of the Iraq War, “Folly” also suggests an aspiring novelist’s coming-of-age. By contrast, “Madness” is narrated by Amar, an Iraqi-American man who, on his way to visit his brother in Kurdistan, is detained by immigration officers and spends the last weekend of 2008 in a holding room in Heathrow. These two seemingly disparate stories gain resonance as their perspectives interact and overlap, with yet new implications for their relationship revealed in an unexpected coda.u003cbru003e u003cbru003eA stunning debut from a rising literary star, u003ciu003eAsymmetryu003c/iu003e is “a transgressive roman a clef, a novel of ideas, and a politically engaged work of metafiction” (u003ciu003eThe New York Times Book Reviewu003c/iu003e), and a “masterpiece” in the original sense of the word” (u003ciu003eThe Atlanticu003c/iu003e). Lisa Halliday’s novel will captivate any reader with while also posing arresting questions about the very nature of fiction itself.
