Availability: On our shelves now at one or more of our stores
Published: Penguin Books - June 6th, 2023

I read this in one sitting - they had to kick me out of the coffee shop. Despite the fact that this was written as Vuong was dealing with the loss of his mother, I saw so much joy and lightness in this collection. I can see he's enjoying himself; I can see he's dealing with himself. If you like his other work, you won't be disappointed in spending this time with him.
