All Our Names; Dinaw Mengestu

Novel goes back and forth between two points of view both describing their relationship with a young African man named Isaac.  The story set in the 1970’s involves a revolution in Africa and one of the displaced African’s experience at a mid-west American University.  Interesting and well written.
