About
The definitive chronicle of our new age of global migration, told through the multi-generational saga of one Filipino family.

When New York Times journalist Jason DeParle moved into the Manila slums with Tita Comodas and her family three decades ago, he never imagined his reporting on them would span three generations and offer the defining chronicle of a new age - the age of global migration. Ina monumental book, DeParle paints an intimate portrait of an unforgettable migrant family as they will themselves out of shantytown poverty into a new global middle class.

Migration is changing the world - reordering politics, economics, and cultures across the globe. Few issues are as polarizing in the United States. But if the politics of immigration is broken, immigration itself - tens of millions of people gathered from across the globe - remains an underappreciated American success. Expertly combining the personal and panoramic DeParle presents both a family saga and a global phenomenon. Ordinary and extraordinary at once, A Good Provider Is One Who Leaves is a twenty-first-century classic rendered in gripping detail.
