Called "A writer to watch, a tremendous talent" by the "Chicago
Tribune," Bich Minh Nguyen makes her fiction debut with the deeply
moving and entertaining story of two Vietnamese sisters. Aside from
their petite stature, Van and Linny Luong couldn't be more different.
Diligent, unassuming Van works as an immigration lawyer in the Michigan
suburbs where she resides with her handsome, Chinese-American lawyer
husband. Beautiful, fashionable Linny lives in Chicago and has drifted
into an affair with a married man. When Van's picture-perfect marriage
collapses and Linny finds herself grappling to escape her dead-end life,
the long-estranged sisters are unable to confide in one another- until
their eccentric inventor father calls them back home to the Vietnamese
American community they fled long ago.
