GO BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM And Other Helpful Recommendations on How to Become American

by | Read by Wajahat Ali

Biography & Memoir • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

This is a funny, unsettling, touching, and energetically narrated audiobook about family, culture, and 21st-century America. Wajahat Ali, a playwright and Ted Talk speaker, among other things, knows about keeping an audience engaged, and he does it here. In this expansive performance he seems to be putting on a one-man play for the ears. Few listeners will leave the audio theater early. Ali, a child of Pakistani immigrants, explores the professional, personal, and political. He touches on everything from being an overweight misfit kid to racism, from dealing with his own obsessive-compulsive disorder to falling in love, and from writing his first play to driving his mother to prison.
