At once a series of love stories and a deeply political and timely book, Amor and Exile spurs emotional and important discussion for any book club or reading group across the continent. Amor and Exile: True Stories of Love Across America’s Borders documents the struggles of undocumented immigrants who fall in love with American citizens. The book is a unique collaboration between Boise-based journalist Nathaniel Hoffman and educator/biologist Nicole Salgado, who lives in exile in Mexico with her family.
Amor and Exile has received much critical acclaim since its publication six months ago, from immigration attorneys, PRI’s “The World,” newspapers and talk radio. Amor and Exile was endorsed by undocumented journalist Jose Antonio Vargas, writer Helen Thorpe (Just Like Us), journalist Glenn Greenwald, Congressman Luis Gutiérrez (D-Chicago) and filmmaker Ellin Jimmerson. Distributed to every member of Congress in the hopes of raising awareness about the impact of current legislation on families, it has been embraced by book clubs in communities across the country, including, most recently, the Human Rights Book Club in Boise, Idaho. You can find out more about the book with the primer document that we put together.
