Thi Bui joined me to talk about her debut memoir book, The Best We Could Do, looking at her parents emigration from war torn Vietnam. It’s a really amazing work that succeeds in capture a rich storied history. It has a lot of strengths in Thi’s ability to tell her parents story, and to also historically contextualize it. The book feels very prescient right now in regards to current political climate and experiences, and well worth checking out.
