Book launch: Deepak Unnikrishnan presents Temporary People
In conversation with Mia Alvar

Greenlight joins Brooklyn publisher Restless Books in celebrating the publication of Deepak Unnikrishnan's debut novel Temporary People.  The winner of the first Restless Books Prize for New Immigrant Writing, Temporary People takes on the humanitarian crisis of the so-called "guest workers" of the Persian Gulf with visionary flair; a starred review in Kirkus hails it as "an enchanting, unparalleled anthem of displacement and repatriation."  Unnikrishnan discusses his work with fellow immigrant author Mia Alvar, whose debut collection of stories In the Country won the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize for Debut Fiction, among other honors.  A wine reception follows to celebrate the book’s launch.
