Tell Me How It Ends: An Essay in Forty Questions by Valeria Luiselli
From Coffee House Press:
A DAMNING CONFRONTATION BETWEEN THE AMERICAN DREAM AND THE REALITY OF UNDOCUMENTED CHILDREN SEEKING A NEW LIFE IN THE U.S.
Structured around the forty questions Luiselli translates and asks undocumented Latin American children facing deportation, Tell Me How It Ends humanizes these young migrants and highlights the contradiction between the idea of America as a fiction for immigrants and the reality of racism and fear—both here and back home.
