People From Ibiza is a surprising, fun, fresh novel told from varied points of view, in which different people travel to the “White Island” in the Mediterranean to spend a few days. They are all running away from their lives, trying to be someone else or, at least, to stop being themselves for a while. This is a deeply human, contemporary novel, in which the island’s supposed craziness seems to want to sweep up the characters.
