In The Atlas of Reds and Blues, an American born daughter of Bengali immigrants moves her family to a suburb of Atlanta. What happens there bears witness to American racism and abuse of power, tracing one woman’s shift from acquiescence to resistance.

The Atlas of Reds and Blues is as narratively beautiful as it is brutal…. Laskar creates a world where the consequences of American terror never stop reverberating…I’ve never read a novel that does nearly as much in so few pages. Laskar has changed how we will all write about state-sanctioned terror in this nation.”
