Interview: Bich Minh Nguyen

Tuesday, February 05, 2008

There's a good article and interview on Vietnamese American author Bich Minh Nguyen, who wrote Stealing Buddha's Dinner, down at the Miami Herald:

Bich (pronounced Bit) Minh Nguyen doesn't remember fleeing Vietnam with her father, sister and grandmother during the fall of Saigon; she was only 8 months old. But her memories of growing up in frozen, foreign Grand Rapids, Mich., remain clear and powerful, centered on the delights to which her classmates seemed to have effortless access: Pringles, cherry-flavored Luden cough drops, Doritos, Little Caesar's pizza, Bubble Yum, Kit Kats, Sugar Babies.
Read the full interview here, and check out more about Nguyen's book down at her site.
