Homeland Elegies, the new novel from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar (Disgraced), is a deeply personal work of identity and belonging that explores an artist’s complex relationship to his and his immigrant family’s American identity. Akhtar will be joined in conversation by Oskar Eustis, the artistic director of the Public Theater.
“An unflinchingly honest self-portrait by a brilliant Muslim-American writer, and, beyond that, an unsparing examination of both sides of that fraught hyphenated reality,” wrote Salman Rushdie. Homeland Elegies is “passionate, disturbing, unputdownable.”
Copies of Homeland Elegies can be purchased from bookshop.org.
