The Best We Could Do

by Thi Bui. New York, NY: Abrams Comicarts, 2017

Thi Bui's memoir tells both her story as well as her family's story, teaching the reader both the immigrant experience but also about the Vietnam War from the perspective of Vietnamese. A beautiful story, but mature content: childbirth, spousal abuse, and mature family issues.

A national bestseller and ABA Inties Spring 2017 Selection.
