The Refugees by Viet Thanh Nguyen – Book Review

Nguyen tells a series of stories of different accounts of refugees from Vietnam in various different American lives – from a young man who ends up living with a  gay couple in San Francisco to a girl whose brother, who died during their escape, has his ghost come to visit her.

Nguyen’s writing is so beautiful and these stories are heartbreaking.
