If You See Me, Don't Say Hi



“These stories have a sharp eye for the complexities of modern life, but Neel Patel writes with the wisdom and compassion of an old soul.”
—Celeste Ng, New York Times bestselling author of Little Fires Everywhere 

“A joy to read, reminiscent of Jhumpa Lahiri and David Ebershoff.”—Imbolo Mbue, New York Times bestselling author of Behold the Dreamers

A bravura debut story collection about love, family, success, and the experience of being brown in America today.

If You See Me, Don’t Say Hi examines the collisions of old world and new world, small town and big city, traditional beliefs (like arranged marriage) and modern rituals (like Facebook stalking). Ranging across the country, Patel’s stories — empathetic, provocative, twisting, and wryly funny — introduce a bold new literary voice, one that feels more timely than ever.
