On Tuesday March 21, Deepak Unnikrishnan, winner of the Prize for New Immigrant Writing for his novel Temporary People, will present the book at Chicago's Unabridged Bookstore.
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."
