June 6-30, 2019

Jende and Neni Jonga have recently emigrated from Cameroon to America to try to make a new life for themselves and their young son. When the Great Recession starts to upend the economy, the Jongas begin to grasp the fragility of the American dream. Imbolo Mbue masterfully weaves a story of class divide, immigration, and marriage in her remarkable debut novel.

Behold the Dreamers is a New York Times bestseller, winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction and a pick for Oprah’s Book Club.
