Product description

Review

"The Good Immigrant is a lively and vital intervention into the British cultural conversation around race. Instead of statistics and dogma we find real human experience and impassioned argument – and it's funny and moving, too. A must read!" (Zadie Smith)

"The stories are sometimes funny, sometimes brutal, always honest … if I could, I’d push a copy of this through the letter box of every front door in Britain." (Independent)

"Highly recommended … It's precisely those who might at first think this book is not about us, who should read it" (Spectator)

"Perceptive, touching and funny" (Observer)

"An important, timely read." (J. K. Rowling)

"Amazing voices … searingly honest" (Grazia)

"We should recognise both the courage that has been shown in producing these essays and the contradictions that necessarily exist across them … The Good Immigrant helps to open up a much-needed space of unflinching dialogue about race and racism in the UK" (Guardian)

"To say the publication of The Good Immigrant has come at a good time would be an understatement … If 2016 has left you feeling helpless, desperately wondering what you can do to repair the damage of anti-immigration rhetoric, then reading it would be a good place to start: it leaves you feeling armed with empathy." (Vice)

"An act of peaceful defiance; as a document of the now, and as an opportunity to educate ourselves about the lives and experiences of others." (Guardian)

"Powerful… The Good Immigrant is a reminder of why Britain is at its best when it lifts the burden of the "bad immigrant" and why it loses so much when it lets it grow" (New Statesman)

Book Description
