The Book of Unknown Americans
Apr 14, 2015
"The Book of Unknown Americans" knits together the stories of a diverse group of Hispanic immigrants who live in a Delaware apartment building. Cristina Henriquez's novel shares the big hopes (a better education, a career on Broadway, love) of these immigrants, along with their sorrows large (brain injury) and small (terrible canned food). She also somehow juggles more than a half-dozen first-person narrators without ever losing the reader's attention. This is a love story, a reality check on the American dream and a very good read. Highly recommended.
