Bel Canto by Ann Patchett

Location: Overland Park Historical Society, 7319 W 79th St, Overland Park

From the TALK series, Entangled World
Discussion Leader: Marilyn Klaus

An American opera singer, a Japanese industrialist, a French diplomat with skills in the kitchen, and a translator who falls in love with a Latin American terrorist are taken hostage by revolutionary terrorists in an unnamed Latin American embassy. Low comedy and high suspense, romance and tragedy blend in Patchett's Orange Prize-winning novel, inspired by the actual seizure of the Japanese ambassador's residence in Peru by Tupac Amaru guerillas in 1996.
