Behold the Dreamers” by Imbolo Mbue was the winner of several literary awards. It’s a novel about family, home and the American Dream. Here’s what the nominator shared: “Immigrants try to pursue the American dream by working for a Lehman Brothers executive. The wealthy executive and his wife and the immigrant couple provide interesting comparisons to analyze. This book also looks at the relationships between husbands and wives, and how traditional roles may change when an immigrant couple moves to U.S.”
