51. Homeland Elegies by Ayad Akhtar
It’s hard to describe this book because while the author claims it is a work of fiction it also hews very closely to his own story and is written as if it’s a memoir told in a series of essays. Fact or fiction at its heart it’s a book about an immigrant doctors from Pakistan and their American born son, the supposed author of the work, figuring out life after 9/11 and then in Trump’s America. I found it to be a very engaging story with lots of poignant insights about life in America. I give it a 9 out of 10.
