This is a genre I gravitate towards. I know I'm missing a lot here!
  1. How the Garcia Girls Lost their Accents - by Julia Alvarez
    Also one of the best books about sisters
  2. In America (movie)
    Starring Samantha Morton. Such a gem!!
  3. An American Tail (animated movie)
    "Somewhere out there..."🎤 This one is from my childhood! I should really rewatch this with my own kids. What an unusual idea for a kids' movie.
  4. The Namesake - by Jhumpa Lahiri
    🙌 still gutted from this one after years
  5. Coming to America (movie)
    02e19e78 0637 4601 9c9f 15c4bc48a3a5
    Just too funny. Remember Eddie Murphy dressed up as an old Jew? Remember Arsenio??
  6. I'm a Stranger Here Myself - by Bill Bryson
    Observations upon moving back to America after years and years of living in England
  7. Teacher Man - by Frank McCourt
    Memoirs of his years teaching all over NYC, beginning as a young immigrant from Ireland. RIP Frank McCourt. You give me dignity as a teacher.
  8. The Terminal (movie)
    Tom Hanks, you are so adorable
