The Progressive Book Club has started a video series, Open Books, in which they ask "PBC authors to tell us about the books they love." This week, Rinku Sen, ARC's Executive Director and co-author of The Accidental American, recommends two novels about characters trapped “between the oppressed and the oppressor,” and tells us why these books speak to her. The Accidental American is available now.
