Beautiful. I loved the framing of the storytelling within food. I loved the way Pham evokes powerful memories and moments in such a spare and impactful way. It's a glorious example of show-don't-tell -- he shows us struggle; he shows us kindness; he shows us identity conflicts and language and cultural displacement. Really stellar book. Also, I totally love that he's giving Gene Yang a hard time -- Thien's sense of humor is delightful.

Gr 9 Up—Pham’s memoir entwines food with memory as he recounts his journey from Vietnam to America. Told
with humor and heart, his life story from childhood through adulthood shines a light on the challenges and joys of his
immigrant experience. Evocative art adds warmth and emotion.

Thank you to Netgalley, the publisher of First Second Books, and the author Thien Pham for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Through the framework of food (Vietnamese and American), Thien Pham recounts his family's perilous journey fleeing Vietnam, staying in a refugee camp, and eventually settling in San Jose, CA, thanks to sponsorship. As with all immigrant stories, the family struggled in a new culture and country but fortunately there were others in the community who could guide them. The parents worked dawn to dusk at manual labor, eventually saving up enough to buy and run a bakery and later a video rental store. Meanwhile Thien grows up fairly Americanized, even losing some of his Vietnamese language skills. The book closes with Thien interviewing his parents about their experiences so he could write this very book. The mom is the fierce heart of the story, the one who dared to dream for better for her loved ones. Tender, funny, and heartfelt.… (mehr)
