Recycle Book Club: VietnamEazy by Trami Nguyen Cron
This event has already passed
At the October meeting of the Recycle Book Club at Recycle Bookstore in Downtown Campbell, we'll feature Trami Nguyen Cron, author of VietnamEazy, a novel about mothers, daughters, and food.
VietnamEazy captures with startling honesty and detail the dizzying dislocation that so many Vietnamese arrivals in the United States have experienced and explores the age-old mysteries of the mother-daughter relationship. It tells the story of Kieu, a Vietnamese-American woman, and her quest for success on a TV cooking show introducing the intoxicating allure of Vietnamese food to a general audience, interwoven with the haunting, sorrowful tale of her family and upbringing. This is a universal tale of redemption that mothers and daughters can read together and discuss, preferably over a steaming bowl of pho.
