Event 49


In a world where borders dominate conversations across continents comes the 20-strong essay collection The Good Immigrant USA, an exploration by writers of the experience of being othered, through personal stories of living between cultures, languages and identities. It follows a UK edition which was hailed by Zadie Smith as “lively and vital”. Contributors Alexander Chee and Porochista Khakpour join Rosabel Tan, in a conversation chaired by Noelle McCarthy, to discuss immigration and belonging.

Supported by Asia New Zealand Foundation.
