Nguyen comes back with a breathtaking collection of short stories, reflecting the complex lives that immigrants have to undertake, and their aspirations to “make it” in another country. From the streets of Ho Chi Ming to the avenues of San Jose, The Refugees offers a platform for people stuck between two worlds, two cultures, yet one tale to tell.
