Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue
Tuesday, April 17, 2018
A debut novel about marriage, immigration, class, race, and the trapdoors in the American Dream—the unforgettable story of a young Cameroonian couple making a new life in New York just as the Great Recession upends the economy. Chose by Oprah for her book club when it was published in late 2016, Behold the Dreamers was also a New York Times Bestseller, winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award, Longlisted for the PEN/Open Book Award, and an ALA Notable Book. A fitting read for our current political climate, sure to lead to much discussion.
