COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Gorgeous Brilliant Style for a Memoir submitted by dntanzer on August 31, 2018, 2:59pm I really appreciated this illustrated memoir. The writing was nice, but honestly nothing special to me, but the combination of the writing with the gorgeous illustrations was a great idea. It adds a lot of life to an already interesting life story.

Profoundly moving submitted by Jinxyluis on August 11, 2021, 2:08pm A gorgeously illustrated, profoundly moving multigenerational memoir. This is a tender and powerful book, graced with Bui's musings on her family's history and their refugee experience.
