Talia, the protagonist of Patricia Engel’s Infinite Country: A Novel, is being held at a correctional facility in Colombia. Her father and a plane ticket to the U.S. are waiting for her back home in Bogotá. And her story, a tale of how her family came to be in two different countries and two different worlds, comes into focus like twists of a kaleidoscope. In Concepcion: An Immigrant Family’s Fortunes, Albert Samaha moves across decades and countries as he questions the belief in a better future that inspired his family to uproot themselves from the Philippines. Has it been worth the cost? In Seeing Ghosts: A Memoir, Kat Chow draws an intimate and haunting portrait of the fallout of grief on three generations of her Chinese American family after the sudden loss of its matriarch.
