Bringing together 21 exciting black, Asian and minority ethnic voices emerging in Britain today, The Good Immigrant explores why immigrants come to the UK, why they stay and what it means to be
‘other’ in a country that doesn’t seem to want you, doesn’t truly accept you – however many generations you’ve been here – but still needs you for its diversity monitoring forms.
How does it feel, to be a stranger in a country you wish would see you as one of its children ?
The Good Immigrant is the most important book you will read this year.

"Glass Room" by Simon Mawer
High on a Czechoslovak hill, the Landauer House has been built
for newlyweds Viktor and Liesel Landauer, a Jew married to a gentile. But, when the storm clouds of WW2 gather, the family must flee, accompanied by Viktor's lover and her child. But the house's
story is far from over, as it passes from hand to hand, from Czech to Russian.
