In conversation with Amitava Kumar
Thank you for joining me and Amitava Kumar for our discussion of Homeland Elegies. Book Passage is such an amazing institution in our national literary life, and it was a real honor for me to be able to share some of the thinking behind my new book with you all.
Book suggestions are always subjective. What you'd recommend to one person you might not to another. So here's a list of books I'm reading and loving:
- Wagnerism by Alex Ross
- Democracy in Chains by Nancy MacClean
- Emerson Among the Eccentrics by Carlos Baker
My conversation partner's most recent book is amazing. President Obama loved it too:
- Immigrant, Montana by Amitava Kumar
A book that's coming out next month that I'm excited about:
- Missionaries by Phil Klay
Stay safe fellow book-loving friends!
