The Orphan Keeper

Camron Wright, 2016

As he grows into adulthood, an Indian boy, placed in an adoptive American home as a child, begins to remember pieces of his childhood .  Hoping to understand more about his identity, he immerses himself in Indian culture.  With a map drawn from memory and accompanied by his business partner, Taj returns to India to search of his birth family.  Wright, the author of The Rent Collector, 2012, turns the story of the real-life Chellamuthu/Taj into a meditation on identity and the meaning of family.
