The President and the Frog by Carolina De Robertis

A fascinating, unusual novel inspired by Pepe Mujica, the ex-president of Uruguay. Political, personal, and philosophical, the narrative alternates between past and present. As a reporter interviews the retired ex-president, distant memories surface. Memories of solitary confinement. Memories of the woman he loved. Memories of his conversations with the frog that shared his cell.  Beautiful writing and a story of love, hope, and survival come together to make this a very special read.—Trey
