Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Funny, intelligent, versatile...profound."
THE WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD
These beautifully wrought stories reveal a new world that has been created imperceptibly in our midst: a United States transformed by many new faces from Afghanistan and Asia, from Uganda and Latin America. These immigrants have in turn been transformed by the "idea" of living in America. Passionate, comic, violent, and ultimately tender, these stories portray our latest arrivals in all their richness and variety, reflected in American eyes equally varied with fear, love, suspicion, or pure astonishment.
"Stunning...Her characters stand on the shaky ground where East meets West and the sound of cultures clashing could shatter glass."
LOS ANGELESTIMES
A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK OF THE YEAR
