Synopsis:

A superb new graphic memoir in which an inspired artist/storyteller reveals the road that brought his family to where they are today: Vietnamerica GB Tran is a young Vietnamese American artist who grew up distant from (and largely indifferent to) his familyrs"s history. Born and raised in South Carolina as a son of immigrants, he knew that his parents had fled Vietnam during the fall of Saigon. But even as they struggled to adapt to life in America, they preferred to forget the past-and to focus on their childrenrs"s future. It was only in his late twenties that GB began to learn their extraordinary story. When his last surviving grandparents die within months of each other, GB visits Vietnam for the first time and begins to learn the tragic history of his family, and of the homeland they left behind. In this family saga played out in the shadow of history, GB uncovers the root of his fatherrs"s remoteness and why his mother had remained in an often fractious marriage; why his grandfather had abandoned his own family to fight for the Viet Cong; why his grandmother had had an affair with a French soldier. GB learns that his parents had taken harrowing flight from Saigon during the final hours of the war not because they thought America was better but because they were afraid of what would happen if they stayed. They entered America-a foreign land they couldnrs"t even imagine-where family connections dissolved and shared history was lost within a span of a single generation. In telling his familyrs"s story, GB finds his own place in this saga of hardship and heroism.Vietnamericais a visually stunning portrait of survival, escape, and reinvention-and of the gift of the American immigrantsrs" dream, passed on to their children.Vietnamericais an unforgettable story of family revelation and reconnection-and a new graphic-memoir classic.
