Praise

“Amitava Kumar’s Immigrant, Montana is a beguiling meditation on memory and migration, sex and politics, ideas and art, and race and ambiguity. Part novel, part memoir, this book is as sly, charming, and deceptive as its passionate protagonist, a writer writing himself into being.”
—Viet Thanh Nguyen, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Sympathizer

“There is a buoyant energy and hilarity to this account of an Indian student seeking the wide world through the women he meets, but one laughs with growing unease as a darker undercurrent is slowly revealed. An unusual, brave twist on the migrant’s tale.”
—Kiran Desai, author of the Man Booker Prize-winning The Inheritance of Loss

“Amitava Kumar’s Immigrant, Montana is romantic, natural, gorgeously detailed, and painfully truthful about exile, grad school, sex, and the South Asian man. Few novels have captured the mental texture of immigrantion so accurately.”
—Karan Mahajan, author of The Association of Small Bombs

Immigrant, Montana is a delight.”
—Hanif Kureishi, author of Intimacy

“Apparently, Amitava Kumar once considered calling this book The Man Without a Country, which is indeed what it’s about—the eros of crossing and crisscrossing borders, the necessity of jumping boundaries, the excitement of refusing to place people and books in categories. An urgent, galvanizing work.”
—David Shields, author of Reality Hunger and Other People

“Audacious in its scope yet with refreshing attention to detail, Immigrant, Montana is one of those novels that, with each rereading, a reader will unlock another treasure box of joy.”
—Yiyun Li, author of Dear Friend, from My Life I Write to You in Your Life

“This is a deeply American novel, one that delves into the messiness of love (and sex!), and the meeting point between identity, character, place, and the constant cultural stuff floating around. . . . Kumar’s novel is uproariously funny and deeply moving.”
—David Means, author of Hystopia
