This is a collection of stories about immigrants, people unsettled from home and trying to find their place in a new country. The stories arise from the writer's experience of many years as a brown man in a predominantly white world, an encounter that often causes fundamental, tectonic shifts in character and outlook. The characters in these stories survive--they live and laugh and grieve and remember--always in between: suspended between two continents, two cultures, two different lives.
