Things We Lost to the Water by Eric Nguyen

In Eric Nguyen’s stunning debut novel, Huong and her two young sons are forced to leave Vietnam. They arrive in New Orleans in 1978, and over the next two decades, each must find themselves in their new lives—a single mother with one son reaching back to the heritage of his birth country, the other moving toward his newfound culture. Their diverging identities challenge the family dynamic and its enduring ties, adding an intimate, nuanced voice to the complexity of the experience of being an immigrant from Vietnam. — Melinda
