Book Event: The Snakehead
Keefe's mastery of this chapter of our ongoing immigration saga is impressive. He muses thoughtfully about its many conundrums and highlights how our ethos of welcoming the persecuted gets soured by bad policy and the pervasive exploitation of the helpless. There will be more chapters, no doubt, but this one was pretty riveting.

- The Snakehead: An Epic Tale of the Chinatown Underworld and the American Dream.
- Basic Electronics: Theory and Practice.
Keefe takes the reader on a spellbinding journey. Keefe's narrative delves deeply into Chinatown and the labyrinthine smuggling routes between China and America, but it's also a glimpse into our conflicted feelings about illegals and the morass of America's immigration policy. A true-life thriller that examines just about every aspect of U.
THE SNAKEHEAD by Patrick Radden Keefe | Kirkus Reviews
Keefe deftly interweaves the political, legal and gunslinging strands of Sister Ping's story, rendering scenes of White House policy deliberation and immigration court procedure as engagingly as scenes of Chinatown shootouts and high-seas rendezvous. An adventure story, crime drama, political thriller and a contemplative look into immigration policy all at once.
A page-turner that reads like a crime novel. Peopled with dozens of colorful characters, it offers an authoritative history of the diaspora of the Chinese and their experience in the United States.
Keefe's account reminds us how much hope the American dream inspires and what a steep price some have paid to try to live it. Keefe's account maintains the swift pace of a thriller. With the immigration debate still boiling, this exploration of how far people will go to achieve the American dream is a must-read. Help Centre. Track My Order. My Wishlist Sign In Join.
