‘The Refugees’ by Viet Thanh Nguyen

Nguyen comes back with a breathtaking collection of short stories, reflecting the complex lives that immigrants have to undertake, and their aspirations to “make it” in another country.

From the streets of Ho Chi Ming to the avenues of San Jose, “The Refugees” offers a platform for people stuck between two worlds, two cultures, yet one tale to tell.

The stories mostly focus on Vietnamese citizens who were forced out of their land during the Vietnam War, and follows their lives as they navigate their new reality and adapt to a new environment.
