"Given how much we loved the TV mini-series version of Little America, it’s only natural that we’re jumping at the chance to cry even more with this new audiobook collecting the true stories that inspired the Apple Original Series...Stock up on tissues for this must-listen audiobook." — Paste From the pages of Epic magazine come the true stories that Inspired the Apple Original Series. This program includes a foreword written and read by Kumail Nanjiani Nearly everyone in America came from somewhere else. This is a fundamental part of the American idea—an identity and place open to everyone. People arrive from all points distant, speaking a thousand languages, carrying every culture, each with their own reason for uprooting themselves to try something new. Everyone has their own unique story. Little America is a collection of those stories, told by the people who lived them. Together, they form a wholly original, at times unexpected portrait of America’s immigrants—and thereby a portrait of America itself. This program is read by Kumail Nanjiani, Vikas Adam, Ramon de Ocampo, Je Nie Fleming, Matt Godfrey, Lamarr Gulley, Deepti Gupta, Vanessa Marroquin, Natalie Naudus, and Natasha Soudek. A Macmillan Audio production from MCD "A cast of diverse narrators lend their voices to telling the remarkable stories of modern American immigrants...These stories are funny, tragic, inspirational, and entirely original, just like the people who tell them." -- AudioFile Magazine

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Though highly diverse, the contributors share one commonality: unique, often remarkable life stories that could only have unfolded in America…This bighearted book celebrates the extraordinary achievements of modern immigrants, clearly demonstrating that what makes—and has always made—America truly great is the diversity of its people. Uplifting reading.” Kirkus Reviews
