Deepak Unnikrishnan shares his stunning, mind-altering debut novel, Temporary People. The inaugural winner of the Restless Books Prize for New Immigrant Writing, Temporary People links twenty-eight stories focusing on the labor force in the United Arab Emirates. Giving substance and identity to the anonymous workers of the Gulf, Unnikrishnan highlights the disturbing ways in which "progress" on a global scale is bound up with dehumanization.
