Books on Diaspora, Migration, Journeys, Writing/Finding Home
The War Of The End Of The World by Mario Vargas Llosa, The Refugees by Viet Thanh Nguyen.

Sula’s Voyage by Catherine Torres, Do Not Say We Have Nothing by Madeleine Thien.
Finders Keepers by Stephen King, The Paper Menagerie And Other Stories by Ken Liu.
