Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Considering whether he will accompany his employers, Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, to America, a personal cook remembers his youth in French-colonial Vietnam, his years as a galley hand at sea, and his days cooking for the doyennes of the Lost Generation. Reader's Guide available. Reprint.

Review:
"[A] dazzling if sometimes daunting debut....A tour de force. Truong should take literate American by storm."

Kirkus, 02/01/2003

Review:
"Truong has wisely resisted two temptations: to write the book in rose-is-a-rose Steinese and to round up the usual Stein entourage of Hemingway, Picasso and company. Truong's narrator, a cook she calls Binh, tells his story with a lush and exocitizing expansiveness, more sweet than savory, at the farthest remove from Stein's habitual austerity....[N]othing in this distinctive novel feels secondhand. Binh is the key that has unlocked something in Truong, less researched than retrieved."

Christopher Benfey, New York Times Book Review, 04/06/2003
