Read full description of the books:
New American Stories presents diverse stories of contemporary American life and dreams lost and found, by four of the best young contemporary writers - Jhumpa Lahiri, Sherman Alexie, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Aleksandar Hemon - as performed by terrific stage and screen actors. All four writers have a unique perspective on the American experience, which is reflected in their work. Whether they are immigrants from another country, or in the case of Sherman Alexie, a Native American, they’re all writing from a voice that comes from being an outsider. They also share well-deserved, universal praise for their work.
