Deepak Unnikrishnan at Diesel, A Bookstore

  • Diesel, A Bookstore 5433 College Ave Oakland, CA 94618 United States

On Friday March 17, Deepak Unnikrishnan, winner of the Restless Books Prize for New Immigrant Writing for his novel Temporary People, will present the book at Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland.

Temporary People takes on the humanitarian crisis of the so-called "guest workers" of the Persian Gulf with visionary flair; a starred review in Kirkus hails it as "an enchanting, unparalleled anthem of displacement and repatriation," and author Alexandra Kleeman calls it "a book of Ovidian metamorphoses for our precarious time."

Known for our fascinating selection of new and used titles, author events, enthusiastically diverse staff, and urban California aesthetic, DIESEL is the cutting-edge, high octane, community-radiating, independent neighborhood bookstore we all dream of hanging out in, getting imaginally turned on in, and literarily inspired by.

Where: Diesel, A Bookstore, 5433 College Ave, Oakland CA 94618

When: Friday March 17, 2017, at 7:00 pm
