A Novel Plumbs An Immigrant Family’s American Dream 6

A fictional Chinese family moves to Plano, Texas, and struggles to make their new home safe — for themselves and then, after a criminal accusation, in the eyes of the law. Novelist Simon Han joins host Krys Boyd to talk about his story about assimilation and the struggle for immigrants to reach that fabled “shining city upon a hill.” His new book is “Nights When Nothing Happened: A Novel.”
