Product Details


“Consistently entertaining.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Intelligent, melancholy, quirky. . . . As cerebral as it is sensual.”
The Boston Globe

“Funny and self-critical—[Immigrant, Montana] inverts and skewers the colonial narrative.”
The New Yorker

“A bold and provocative counter-narrative. . . . Kumar writes with disarming honesty.”
The Guardian

“Intelligent and intimate. . . . Ambitious artistic undertakings like Kumar’s are how the literature of exile secures its place in the new country.”
The Millions

Entertainment Weekly

“Droll and exhilarating. . .this coming-of-age-in-the-city story is bolstered by the author’s captivating prose, which keeps it consistently surprising and hilarious. . . . An inventive delight.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A whip-smart. . .exploration of home—or lack thereof.”
Kirkus Reviews

“[A] remarkable novel. . .with surprising twists and turns.”
New York Journal of Books

“Kumar [is] a keen observer of the contemporary American immigrant experience. . . . A droll and inventive tale for the intellectually omnivorous.”
