The most vital audiobook I've heard this year
The Good Immigrant is absolutely essential listening for anyone interested in what it means to be a human in the 21st century (or any century). It's a collection of essays by BAME writers living and working in Britain, but the stories are universal. Some of the essays are funny, others poignant, some shocking, others heartbreaking. All are interesting. It was wonderful hearing each author read their own essay; what a wonderful testament to the diverse talent of writers, thinkers, actors and educators in Britain today. I learnt a lot and it made me think. So very highly recommended; I listen to a lot of audiobooks but this is the best this year so far. I tore through it in two days, but I'm going to go back and listen to it again.
