Invisible people

stories of lives at the margins
Alex Tizon ; edited and with an introduction by Sam Howe Verhovek ; foreword by Jose Antonio Vargas
Book - 2020

"The late Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Alex Tizon told the epic stories of marginalized people--from lonely immigrants struggling to forge a new American identity to a high school custodian who penned a New Yorker short story... Invisible People collects the best of Tizon's rich, empathetic accounts... Mining his Filipino American background, Tizon tells the stories of immigrants from Cambodia and Laos. He gives a fascinating account of the Beltway sniper and insightful profiles of Surfers for Jesus and a man who tracks UFOs. His articles--many originally published in the Seattle Times and the Los Angeles Times--are brimming with enlightening details about people who existed outside the mainstream's field of vision."--Dust jacket flap.
