I voted for this book in the 2016 Goodreads Choice Awards. Line-by-line modern translations of every Shakespeare play and poem. [Her] meticulous storytelling announces a writer in command of her gifts, plumbing the desires and disappointments of our emerging global culture. Cracks in the Edwards marriage are paralleled by trouble for the Jongas, too.
One night, they fight so badly that Jende slaps Neni. Painful disappointments - and challenges affect people of every race - class - and color. My other big concern and this doesn't give anything away is that at one point in the book, Jende a character who you really like and care about gives his wife Neni a horribly vicious beating.
The first edition of the novel was published in March 15th 2016, and was written by Imbolo Mbue. Describe the differences between these two characters. Neni finds Cindy in a bad way one day, and Cindy suddenly confides in her. Cultural differences and issues of privilege are explored - for example, the Edwards' oldest son is anti-establishment and longs to abandon law school and head to India, whereas Jende believes the opportunity to become a lawyer is one of the greatest things he could give his son.
Initially, Cindy expresses no displeasure toward Jende. Jende regularly puts in fourteen-hour days, and Neni juggles two jobs and classes at a community college. She tells Neni to go alert Clark, but Neni backs out. She Behold the Dreamers Jende to leave and they walk to Columbus Circle and sit together.

Antagonist: Greed; the American Dream• After he gets the job, Clark asks him to sign a confidentiality agreement, meaning that Jende will not reveal a word of what he overhears Clark say while Behold the Dreamers him around—not to anyone.
This book shows how tenuous the hold on their lives are for some. Cindy confides her thoughts and secrets to Nemi who is hard working and hoping to become a pharmacist. The story is told from the perspectives of Jende Jongo, and his wife, Nemi, who are from Cameroon dreaming of a better future in their new home.
Do you think these two things are linked? The next day, Cindy reveals that she grew up poor and had an abusive mother.

Then, Neni bows out, afraid of what Jende will think of her meddling in the affairs of the family whom they rely on for everything—to have enough money to send home to struggling relatives, to plan for their future, and to survive in New York.
And I am from Cameroon, in Central Africa, or West Africa.
