The Gangster We Are All Looking For: A Novel by lê thi diem thúy [in AsianWeek]

Gangster We Are All Looking ForDon’t know how this one fell through the cracks as I devoured it months ago and it was one of my favorites this whole year – must have been that I didn’t want to let it go. This is a haunting, finely crafted slim work about a young Vietnamese girl who arrives in California as a refugee and, with innocent eyes, watches her parents struggle to make a home in an unwelcoming, bewildering new land.
