Summary: We’re told that we live in a multicultural melting pot – that we’re post-racial. Yet, studies show that throughout the UK, people from BAME groups are much more likely to live in poverty than white British people (Institute of Race Relations). It’s a hard time to be an immigrant, or the child of one, or even the grandchild of one. Gathering BAME voices from across Britain in a searing selection of essays exploring otherness, racial inequality and the immigrant experience, Nikesh Shukla expertly curates this book full of revealing insights on every page. Varied in tone yet coherent in intent, the pieces that form The Good Immigrant provide an invaluable snapshot of modern Britain.
