This Riot Recommendation for favorite books about Indian Americans is sponsored by Flatiron Books and If You See Me Don’t Say Hi by Neel Patel.
A Vanity Fair Ultimate Fiction Pick for summer and a bookseller favorite, If You See Me Don’t Say Hi is a modern story collection that Behold the Dreamers author Imbolo Mbue calls “a joy to read, reminiscent of Jhumpa Lahiri and David Ebershoff.”
Everyone here at the Riot has been head-over-heels for Dimple meeting Rishi, no take-backs. But the Indian American experience is a varied one that is so much bigger than a single book or author, and we want to read widely. To that end, please visit our comment section with your favorite books about Indian Americans. We’ll return with a roundup of your picks so your fellow readers can add them to their TBR piles!
