The Department of Asian American Studies is proud to announce the publication of Assistant Professor Sameer Pandya's new novel, Members Only

From the publisher: "First the white members of Raj Bhatt's posh tennis club call him racist. Then his life falls apart. Along the way, he wonders: where does he, a brown man, belong in America?"

Congratulations to Professor Pandya! Members Only has been featured in the New York Times Book Review and on NPR's All Things Considered.
