The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears by Dinaw Mengestu
The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears

josue, January 27, 2013

This book was by far my favorite read in 2012. Dinaw's words describe things so vividly that it hurts sometimes. This beautiful story touches on many issues ranging from immigrant identities, the American dream, and gentrification.
