The Hunting Season: Immigration and Murder in an All-American Town (Beacon Press; $24.95) is the true story of an immigrant's murder that turned Patchogue, a quaint village on the Long Island shore, into ground zero in the war on immigration. Drawing on firsthand interviews and on-the-ground reporting, journalist Mirta Ojito presents a portrait of one community struggling to reconcile the hate and fear underlying the idyllic veneer of their all-American town. “. . . unflinching as it is important."--Junot Diaz. Ojito, who won a Pulitzer Prize for national reporting, is also the author of Finding Mañana: A Memoir of a Cuban Exodus.
