Narrator Vikas Adam proves to be an excellent partner to author Suketu Mehta in this detailed and absorbing narrative, which finds links between immigration, imperialism, colonialism, climate change, and capitalism's thirst for cheap labor. Adam alters his pacing to signal the direct quotes from Mehta's interviews with immigrants in Morocco, France, the U.S., and other countries in the West and East where migration is a lively political topic. His facility with smooth pronunciation in a range of Indic and European languages and judiciously restrained use of sarcasm to relay irony combine to make a compelling book an even more compelling listen. The power of storytelling to convey truth is demonstrated here. F.M.R.G. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2019]
