TGT Author J.P. Bone’s novel is available now.

“A political novel that touches the heart.”
Howard Zinn, Author of A People’s History of the United States

“…a damn good read!” 
–Michael Moore, Academy Award winning filmmaker, author

“J. P. Bone proves that where there is a will there is a way, and that in the midst of pain, struggle, and sacrifice, no human should be ‘illegal.’”
–Jesse “Chuy” Varela, Writer, journalist and jazz historian

“J.P. Bone has not only produced a novel worthy of reading on its literary merits, but his Illegals is also an extraordinary story which captures the human drama of the everyday struggles experienced by Latino immigrants in their quest for survival and social justice.”
–Carlos Muñoz, Jr., Professor Emeritus University of California, Berkeley

Illegals is a rare uplifting literary work. It cites chapter and verse the details of the exploitation of working people from Latin America by the corporate colossus up north. It paints a bleak picture of immigrants’ plight, yet offers inspiring hope for those who dare to work together in solidarity.
–Studs Terkel, Pulitzer Prize winning author, historian

“J. P. Bone’s novel Illegals is a rarity in contemporary literature — a story which boldly and vividly presents a piece of contemporary history, told through characters who cannot fail to move you with their anguish and their courage. I am reminded of Upton Sinclair and John Steinbeck, who did not hesitate to confront the most urgent issues of their day through their fiction. Illegals is a political novel that touches the heart. I hope it is widely read.”
— Howard Zinn, author, A People’s History of the United States

“I read Illegals with great enjoyment (possibly not the best word for a story both depressing  and uplifting). JP Bone has captured the essence of a certain piece of our society’s experience today.”
–Eric Foner, Pulitizer Prize winning historian, author of  The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery

Illegals is, in a way, everyone’s story. As a nation of immigrants, most of our families had to find a way, by hook or crook, to get into this country. It wasn’t always pretty. Most have forgotten how it was that we happened to be Americans in the first place. A book like this reminds us that the struggle to enjoy the ‘freedom’ promised in America is exactly just that — still a struggle, still not available to all. I encourage you to read Illegals not just for its powerful commentary, but because it’s a damn good read!”
–Michael Moore, Academy award winning director, author
