Event description

Description

Award-winning writer Nikesh Shukla discusses his new book The Good Immigrant, in which he gathers together 21 emerging British Black, Asian and minority ethnic writers, poets, journalists and artists to confront issues of race and immigration. Their essays paint a picture of what it means to be ‘other’ in a country that doesn’t seem to want you, doesn’t truly accept you, needs you for its equality monitoring forms and might prefer you if you won a major reality TV competition.

 

Poignant, weary, polemic, sometimes humorous, sometimes angry, and always challenging, The Good Immigrant explores why immigrants come to the UK, why they stay, what it means to be mixed race, and where your place is in the world if you’re unwelcome in the place you call home.
