Beautiful Book!

by Victoria on Apr 26, 2007

I read Bich Ming Nguyen's short story in Scribner's Best of the Fiction Workshops 1999, and LOVED IT! When I saw she had come out with a book, I bought it immediately, This book reads very quickly--I read it in one day--and is a beautiful reflection on growing up as an "outsider" in America. Her descriptions of food and use of food as metaphor is perfectly done.
