Longlisted for the National Book Award, The UnAmericans is the debut work of fiction by a 2013 National Book Foundation "5 Under 35" Honoree.
Molly Antopol’s deeply sympathetic characters struggle for footing in an uncertain world, hounded by forces beyond their control. Their voices are intimate and powerful and they resonate with searing beauty. Antopol is a superb young talent, and The UnAmericans will long be remembered for its wit, humanity, and heart.
"The UnAmericans is poised to be this year's sensation… the layered riches and historical sweep of its stories make them feel grand, like novels writ small."
