The Other Americans

The Other Americans by Laila Lalami is a superlative expose of widespread racism brilliantly injected into a hit and run mystery. Told from the view point of delectable and repulsive set of characters, Laila shows us a brittle Americana fabric that is searching for answers. Loneliness, love, immigration, cultural confusion and the definition of home percolate this gorgeous novel. The metaphors come fast and furious.
