Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
In the narrative of his years at a university in New York, Kailash describes the joys and disappointments of his immigrant experience; the unfamiliar political and social textures of campus life; the indelible influence of a charismatic professor - also an immigrant. The brilliant melding of story and reportage, anecdote and annotation, picture and text, gives us a singularly engaging, insightful, and moving novel - one that explores the varieties and vagaries of cultural misunderstanding, but is, as well, an impassioned investigation of love.
