This is a wonderful peace of testimonio writing, or roman a clef. It ties nicely with Appiah piece on cosmopolitan reading, by telling detailed and concrete stories, testimonio writing allows readers to conjure up a world that allows them to empathize with the kind of life depicted while still keeping a critical distance--we are similar but NOT the same.
