The Immigrant's Handbook

(2012)
A novel by

 
Delivering a fast-paced, existential whirlwind, this novel follows a woman who arrives in an unfamiliar country with high hopes for a new life, only to suffer a tremendous loss. Her story is compassionately told, with a unique narrative deftly portraying her struggles to triumph against the many odds immigrants commonly face. The author takes great aesthetic risks, employing surrealism and compelling symbolism that make the aspects of frailty, hope, disillusionment, violence, and confusion adroitly rendered with empathy and wit. This indisputably thought-provoking book sheds a relentless light on the myriad ways social justice affects those seeking asylum.
