Books Recommended by Barack Obama
The Glass Hotel novel by Canadian writer Emily St. John Mandel
Emily St. John was born and raised on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada.
The Glass Hotel is a charming representation of ravenousness and culpability, love and daydream, phantoms and potentially negative side-effects, and the limitless ways we look for importance in our lives. It is the story of individuals being individuals. Great, terrible, and in the middle of between consistently, it’s perceiving that individuals encourage themselves at times by tricking others or themselves.
Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson
The author has composed this book just keeping American social science and brain research at prime concentration. While doing this, she contrasted it and the prejudice during Nazi Germany and the Standing framework in India. However it is genuine, the essayist has discontinuously portrayed a few genuine stories and encounters in such a way that the perusing never gets dull. According to the Indian point of view, anything that she has referenced about the Indian standing framework, they are an unadulterated reality and not distorted as a portion of the clients have said in their particular surveys here. That is in support of now.
Homeland Elegies by Ayad Akhtar
Homeland Elegies blends fact and fiction to tell an epic story of longing and dispossession in the world that 9/11 made. Part family drama, part social essay, part picaresque novel, at its heart it is the story of a father, a son, and the country they both call home. Ayad Akhtar forges a new narrative voice to capture a nation in which debt has ruined countless lives and the gods of finance rule, where immigrants live in fear, and where the unhealed wounds of 9/11 continue to wreak havoc around the world. Akhtar attempts to make sense of it all through the lens of a story about one family, from a heartland town in America to palatial suites in Davos to guerrilla lookouts in the mountains of Afghanistan. All the while sparing no one-least of all himself-in order to make better sense of it all.
Jack by Marilynne Robinson
Jack is Robinson’s fourth novel in this now-classic series. In it, Robinson tells the story of John Ames Boughton, the prodigal son of Gilead’s Presbyterian minister, and his romance with Della Miles, a high school teacher who is also the child of a preacher. They are deeply felt, tormented, star-crossed interracial romance resonates with all the paradoxes of American life, then and now.
Missionaries by Phil Klay
Missionaries brilliantly fill one of the largest gaps in contemporary literature.” In Missionaries, Phil Klay examines the globalization of violence through the interlocking stories of four characters and the conflicts that define their lives. For Mason, a U.S. Army Special Forces medic, and Lisette, a foreign correspondent, America’s long post-9/11 wars in the Middle East exerted a terrible draw that neither is able to shake. Where can such a person go next? All roads lead to Colombia, where the US has partnered with local government to keep predatory narco gangs at bay. Mason, now a liaison to the Colombian military, is ready for the good war, and Lisette is more than ready to cover it. Juan Pablo, a Colombian officer, must juggle managing the Americans’ presence and navigating a viper’s nest of factions bidding for power. Meanwhile, Abel, a lieutenant in a local militia, has lost almost everything in the seemingly endless carnage of his home province, where the lines between drug cartels, militias, and the state are semi-permeable. Drawing on six years of research in America and Colombia into the effects of the modern way of war on regular people, Klay has written a novel of extraordinary suspense infused with geopolitical sophistication and storytelling instincts that are second to none. Missionary is a window not only into modern war but into the individual lives that go on long after the drones have left the skies.
