The Refugees - Viet Thanh Nguyen

So far I have read five stories and have been moved to tears once. I love this collection of short stories.


Black-Eyed Women-the gut punch I got to a reveal about the narrator was heart-breaking. The strength of her and her mother. 


The Other Man-a refugee's sexual awakening in the 1970s in San Francisco.


War Years-One woman acknowledging the pain of another. Without a word being spoken about it.


The Transplant-Still not done with this, but liking the story so far. 


Hope it keeps it up.
