Laila Lalami: Conditional Citizens
What does it mean to be American? In this starkly illuminating and impassioned book, Pulitzer Prize–finalist LAILA LALAMI recounts her unlikely journey from Moroccan immigrant to U.S. citizen, using it as a starting point for her exploration of the rights, liberties, and protections that are traditionally associated with American citizenship.
