ALL OUR NAMES by Dinaw Mengestu

Dinaw Mengestu’s ALL OUR NAMES was reviewed in the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, and the National Post, and Mengustu was on NPR with Lynn Neary. The Wall Street Journal called the book “disarmingly tender…true and moving,” and said, “the author perceptively explores the way that alienation serves as the handmaid of idealism.” The Washington Post said, “The emotional power of “All Our Names” seeps through lines that seem placid on the surface.” Knopf published the book on March 5, 2014.
