Nikesh Shukla, threatens the literary world with the creativity of his latest collection of essays, ‘The Good Immigrant’.
Shukla, the editor of the collection, gathers the voices of 21 exciting Black, Asian and minority voices. These writers highlight the issues that they face as an immigrant – also detailing ‘why they come’ and ‘why they stay’.
The short essays investigate what it means to live in a country that ‘doesn’t seem to want you’. These immigrants are labelled as unwanted and as ‘other’. The book is inspired by discussion on society’s labelling of people of colour as ‘bad immigrants’.
The timeless essays are humorous, heart-warming and heart-breaking.
