Illustrated with old photos and peppered with Hindi and Urdu phrases, Homecoming King features a central theme of the immigrant experience in the United States, based on true stories from Minhaj’s life as the California-born son of Indian Muslim immigrant parents. He discusses his childhood growing up in mostly white Davis, California, where he lived alone with his dad for eight years while his mother was finishing medical school in India. He talks about the pressures of being the child of demanding immigrant parents while at the same time experiencing racism, bullying and rejection from the outside world. Stories include his mother returning to California with a younger sister he didn’t know existed, his family receiving threats and harassment after 9/11, his heartbreaking senior prom night (when he went to pick up his date only to discover her parents had found her a white boy to take because of “how it would look”), and disapproval from his parents that he was engaged to a Hindu woman.
