About the Book.
In 2011, Jose Antonio Vargas became America’s best-known undocumented immigrant when The New York Times Magazine published his story about his life in the United States after arriving from the Philippines in 1993 at the age of twelve. By coming out publicly as undocumented, he was risking everything he had built in the United States. Now, with the national debate over immigration at a fever pitch, Vargas examines not only the facts of immigration but also the searing emotional reality of living for twenty-five years as a contributing member of a country that does not consider him one of its own, in DEAR AMERICA: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen (Dey Street Books; On Sale September 18, 2018).

He has written stories for The New York Times Magazine and Time, and his work has appeared in Rolling Stone and The New Yorker.
