Winner of the PEN/Jerard Award. A vivid, funny, and viscerally powerful memoir about childhood, assimilation, food, and growing up in the 1980s
Beginning with Nguyen's family's harrowing migration from Saigon in 1975, Stealing Buddha's Dinner is nostalgic and candid, deeply satisfying and minutely observed, and stands as a unique vision of the immigrant experience and a lyrical ode to how identity is often shaped by the things we long for.
