  • Brown Man in White Light: An Immigrant Romance
    Deben Roy

    Book | Language: English | Category: Novel | Publisher: River Boat Books | Publication Year: 2020 | Price: $ 18.95
    Brown Man in White Light is an immigrant’s story set in the United States after the events of September 11, when a nation previously friendly and welcoming of strangers suddenly turns hostile towards many people, including some within its own borders. Dedicated teacher and long-time U.S. resident Robi Sen faces difficult choices after his wife decides to go back home and the authorities begin to investigate his teaching practices, resulting in suspension from his university. How he comes to terms—moving back and forth between continents—with these various personal and professional losses is the stuff of today’s immigrant lives. No longer having to dig a living out of hardscrabble earth, yet faced with many of the same challenges, each man and woman must search for their own answers. Along the way, Robi finds love and loses it, seeks friendship and community, and arrives at an answer to what the words home and belonging might mean in the age of global citizenship. Like its central character, the novel is impassioned and perceptive; the writing sparkles with insight and humor. The prose is simple and forceful, in the manner of the masters. Roy’s deft handling of language makes for a deceptively easy read, but the protagonist and his joys and sorrows linger in the reader’s mind a long time. Amazon (outside India)
