Powerful and deeply moving personal stories about the physical and emotional toll one endures when forced out of ones homeland. PBS OnlineIn January 2017, Donald Trump signed an executive order stopping entry to the United States from seven predominantly Muslim countries and dramatically cutting the number of refugees allowed to resettle in the United States each year. The American people spoke up, with protests, marches, donations, and lawsuits that quickly overturned the order. Though the refugee caps have been raised under President Biden, admissions so far have fallen short.In The Displaced, Pulitzer Prizewinning writer Viet Thanh Nguyen, himself a refugee, brings together a host of prominent refugee writers to explore and illuminate the refugee experience. Featuring original essays by a collection of writers from around the world, The Displaced is an indictment of closing our doors, and a powerful look at what it means to be forced to leave home and find a place of refuge.One of the Ten Best Books of the Year. Minneapolis Star-TribuneTogether, the stories share similar threads of loss and adjustment, of the confusion of identity, of wounds that heal and those that dont, of the scars that remain. San Francisco ChroniclePoignant and timely, these essays ask us to live with our eyes wide open during a time of geo-political crisis. Also, 10 of the cover price of the book will be donated annually to the International Rescue Committee, so I hope readers will help support this book and the vast range of voices that fill its pages.
