I’m a new mom, born the same year as the author in Saigon, and we escaped on a boat one year after her family did. This book hit really close to home. Reading about the Vietnamese experience in the form of a comic book strips the experience down to its bare roots. And those roots are complex, rough, and beautiful. The Best We Could Do is an absolute treasure. I know what I’ll be giving to my closest friends this year for Christmas. Those who read it will understand the Vietnamese experience more deeply.
Thanks to Bill Gates for recommending this book among his top 5 for 2017 reads!
Recommended for anyone old enough to feel ways about things.
