Description
Advance praise for Behold the Dreamers "Dazzling, fast-paced, and exquisitely written, Behold the Dreamers is one of those rare novels that will change the way you see the world. Imbolo Mbue is a breathtaking talent." --Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train "Who is this Imbolo Mbue and where has she been hiding? Her writing is startlingly beautiful, thoughtful, and both timely and timeless. She's taking on everything from family to the Great Recession to immigration while deftly reminding us what it means to truly believe in 'the American Dream.'" --Jacqueline Woodson, National Book Award-winning author of Brown Girl Dreaming "It's rare that a book is so fascinating, so emotionally compelling, and so beautiful that I literally can't put it down. I picked Behold the Dreamers up one evening before bed. I turned the last page at dawn. It ruined the next day for me--I wasn't much good for anything but a nap--but it was worth every lost hour." --Ayelet Waldman, New York Times bestselling author of Love and Treasure "A beautiful book about one African couple starting a new life in a new land, Behold the Dreamers will teach you as much about the promise and pitfalls of life in the United States as about the immigrants who come here in search of the so-called American dream." --Sonia Nazario, author of Enrique's Journey and winner of the Pulitzer Prize "Among the spate of novels forged in the crucible of the previous decade, Mbue's impressive debut deserves a singular place. . . . Realistic, tragic, and still remarkably kind to all its characters, this is a special book." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
