STORY SYNOPSIS:
Jia Tolentino’s story “The Odyssey” is a slowly unwinding tale of Ulan Esenovitch, a taxi driver in Kyrgyzstan who is caught in conflict, torn between fulfilling his obligations as a husband and father, while also seeking intimacies with other men in a country where homosexuality is widely accepted as immoral. Ulan’s division is further strained by the purchase of a new Honda Odyssey, which both increases his familial obligations and allows him more opportunity to escape and avoid the bleak, harsh life of post-Soviet Kyrgyzstan. The story also explores gender roles and the political history of the country.
