Book of the Month
Each month, we select a brand new book that we love so much that we guarantee you'll love it too—and if you don't, we'll give you your money back. This month we're recommending Homeland Elegies: A Novel by Ayad Akhtar.
"Homeland Elegies is the best book so far to grapple with the cause and effects of the current administration and political climate. There are more than a few uncomfortable moments in Homeland Elegies. There are also moments where I disagreed with the author/narrator. And there are moments of revelation; such as the narrator's visit to Pakistan, the country his parents immigrated from. Watching first and second generation immigrants grapple with what each perceives to be the American dream (and they are always going to be different visions) is what makes Homeland Elegies leave a lasting impression - unlike the flash flood of other books on this administration." - Martin.
