The Other Americans

by Laila Lalami

Finalist for the National Book Award 2019 An Observer, Literary Review and Time Book of the Year 'One of the most affecting novels I have read. Subtle, wise and full of humanity' The Times Late one spring night, Driss Guerraoui, a Moroccan immigrant in California, is walking across a darkened intersection when he is killed by a speeding car. The repercussions of his death bring together a diverse cast of characters, deeply divided by race, religion and class. As the characters tell their stories and the mystery unfolds, Driss's family is forced to confront its secrets, a town faces its hypocrisies, and love, in all its messy and unpredictable forms, is born. 'A state-of-America family saga told as a slow-burn detective story' Observer 'I experienced the same pleasure reading it as I got from the great classic novels . . . The characters seem so real, so alive, you can almost touch them' Leila Slimani, author of Lullaby 'Exceptionally rich' Sunday Times
