From our reporter Kat Chow in New York, here are two books to understand: The world of dreamers, Imbolo Mbue and The Wangs vs. Jade Chang.
Kat says, “these are two great books, exactly stereotypes – stories about immigrants.” “What’s interesting is that both books were written during the 2008 financial crisis, and neither of the two books is complimentary to the American version. They are both interesting and enjoyable readings. These books deal with the themes of race, inequality, money and the naked eye. Home – not dull. “
