MISSED TRANSLATIONS Meeting the Immigrant Parents Who Raised Me

by | Read by Sunul Malhotra, Sopan Deb

Biography & Memoir • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Journalist and comedian Sopan Deb tells his story of turning his estrangement from his parents into a deep and meaningful relationship while redefining his own South Asian identity. His fast-paced narration and straightforward candor lend themselves to a rapidly unfolding and exciting listen filled with a mix of raw authenticity and laugh-out-loud humor. Deb offers distinct voices for his parents, from his father's boisterous intensity to his mother's more reserved forlornness, a juxtaposition that further exemplifies the dissolution of their arranged marriage. This bittersweet listen echoes the disillusionment of the American Dream for immigrants while capturing the messy but heartfelt reconciliation of a family.
