This seems like quite the book to read during these times where immigration has almost become a partisan issue due to how simplified the communication of it ends up being. It’s the notion of the “Other” whereby individuals end up being demonized or treated unequally due to the fact that they do not fit the mold that the majority expects of them. I’ve heard a lot of great things about this author and this book in particular and given how thoroughly she goes into the notion of cultural identity, it seems like it will be a harrowing read in an era where there seems to be a cultural war over what “Americanism” means.
