Summary
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 an account of the Beltway sniper and insightful profiles of Surfers for Jesus and a man who tracks UFOs. His articles provide details about people who existed outside the mainstream's field of vision
