For all the hype, I found it a bit tedious at times. Sometimes does a bit too much to sacrifice story-telling for highbrow social messaging. It’s very thoughtful, meaningful, and well-written, but often more liberal-pleasing, NPR-geared academia than entertaining. Recommended if you’re trying to get a nuanced and real glimpse into the African-American immigrant experience, but not a whimsical read.

One of those books where I’m really sad it’s over. So well written, really insightful commentary on race and cultural differences, and so enjoyable to read. Absolutely recommend!

Enjoyed. Lots of intersting insights and some very poetic descriptions. This book is very personal to its author, drawing on lots Of her own thoughts around race
