Gold Diggers

By Sanjena Sathian

How far would you go for a piece of the American dream? A magical realist coming-of-age story, Gold Diggers skewers the model minority myth to tell a hilarious and moving story about immigrant identity, community, and the underside of ambition. Sanjena Sathian’s astonishing debut offers a fine-grained, profoundly intelligent, and bitingly funny investigation into what's required to make it in America. A Good Morning America Buzz Pick, soon to be a series produced by Mindy Kaling, and New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice. (Fiction)
