    eBook Viet Thanh Nguyen à The Refugees ePUB ç à refugees download, The Refugees PDFEPUBI read a lot of books in 2017 about the refugee andor immigrant experience What It Means When a Man Falls from the Sky Exit West Pachinko The Leavers and none of them felt as dry as this book To say this is supposed to be one of the best books of last year I was disappointedNguyen tries to do with this what Arimah did with What It Means When a Man Falls from the Sky except with Vietnamese immigrants instead of Nigerian The book contains a number of stories all relating to Vietnam and refugees in various ways but both books focus instead on the mundane aspects of family life grief and sexuality with the refugeeimmigrant aspect forming a backdrop Unlike Arimah's work though the characters here felt flat and lifeless to me Where Arimah captured small telling moments between people and infused them with emotion Nguyen merely narrates a series of events The combinati

    eBook Viet Thanh Nguyen à The Refugees ePUB ç à refugees download, The Refugees PDFEPUBAfter a spate of so so books The Refugees reminded me of what makes me love a work of fiction excellent writing creative story telling and complex human emotions The Refugees is a slim book of short stories but it really hit the mark For the most part the common thread between the stories is the experience of Vietnamese refugees who have moved to the US Many stories focus on complex parent child dynamics or dynamics within couples Many characters have memories of the extraordinary lengths their parents went to in order to get them out of Vietnam and most stories focus on the lives forged in

    eBook Viet Thanh Nguyen à The Refugees ePUB ç à refugees download, The Refugees PDFEPUBViet Thanh Nguyen's 8 story collection in The Refugees focuses on Vietnamese refugees in complex interesting and sometimes surprising ways What's clear is that the immigrant experience is as uniue as each individual As characters move between families cultures and identities the pull of what's left behind or forgotten shapes them as much as experiences in their new culture Memory thus plays a large role in the stories no so than in I'd Love You to Want Me In this story a wife deals with her husband's dementia Discarded memories whether voluntarily discarded or not thus become ghosts which prevent any comfortable staking out of identity either individually in families or in a couple who have grown old together Black Eyed Woman is another story which stands out Our narrator is a ghost writer for memoirs so memory is the cornerstone of this story as well I also thought The Other Man and The Transplan

    eBook Viet Thanh Nguyen à The Refugees ePUB ç à refugees download, The Refugees PDFEPUBPoster child short stories48 starsYou’ll hear lots of reviewers gushing about this collection of stories Believe them In fact I won’t start slinging around glowing adjectives myself because there’s a traffic jam—there are so many ohs and ahs on the road I don’t need to add to the verbal carbon imprint Why bore you with the same old story? Once you’ve heard this book gem is shiny bright you don’t need to hear everyone in the world repeat glowing words about its glowing existence Let me just say that this is a beautiful collection of stories about Vietnamese refugees who’ve ended up in AmericaEven though the gems are shiny they aren’t flashy Nguyen doesn’t describe the characters’ often harrowing trips to a new land though the journeys are alluded to and make the characters and their dilemmas much complex and heartfelt Instead Nguyen’s stories are about what their lives are like once they get to A
