Win 1 of 10 copies of Lucky Boy
With its centring of immigrants in Southern California and their rights, Shanthi Sekaran’s second novel feels timely while taking readers on a journey through definitions of motherhood and ‘doing good’. Ignacio is a boy wanted by two women: his young mother Soli, who is placed in immigrant detention after making the perilous crossing from Mexico into America; and Kavya, who believes she can offer him the life he deserves in Berkeley. The two stories unfold simultaneously, contrasting the experience of an undocumented immigrant with the life of a first-generation Indian-American. Sekaran treats each character with illuminating empathy, showing the deep bonds of love that echo through their actions.
