Which may be enough baggage to continue our journey on our own. Few, if any, readers will doubt that the author actually lived these events — her voice is so clear and so honest that there is no sense of artifice at all. Though there is no sanitation and many sick people, they still feel grateful that they are able to escape at all, though terrified that the boat might be attacked by communists or pirates, either of which would probably kill them. After days on this boat, they arrive in Malaysia, and within fifteen minutes of their arrival, their now-empty boat sinks without warning. A doctor wanted by the communists in Saigon downloads places for each of his five children on separate boats out of Vietnam, assigning each of them to the care of a Canadian priest, hoping that some of them will survive. In their Saigon house, her father introduces the young communist soldiers who occupy it to piano music, which they have never heard before, having been conscripted as twelve-year-olds and denied any opportunity to experience the arts. Traditional ao dai of Vietnam, which Nguyen rediscovers on her return to Vietnam Dozens of other enlightening episodes are recorded here, with moments of great poignancy and sadness contrasting with lovely and loving stories that reveal character and a sense of adventure as the novel weaves back and forth in time. Now, as the mother of two sons, and a professional with advanced degrees, Nguyen is determined to preserve her immigrant history for her sons — she knows that specific events like the ones she records here will never be recorded in history books. In sharing her story, the consummate story of the immigrant experience, Nguyen benefits her readers, as well.

Secrets from My Vietnamese Kitchen

The people sitting on deck told us there was no boundary between the blue of the sky and the blue of the sea. Heaven and hell embraced in the belly of our boat.

Heaven promised a turning point in our lives, a new future, a new history. Hell, though, displayed our fears: Before our boat had weighed anchor in the middle of the night on the shores of Rach Gia, most of the passengers had just one fear: But as soon as the vessel was surrounded, encircled by the uniform blue horizon, fear was transformed into a hundred-faced monster who sawed off our legs and kept us from feeling the stiffness in our immobilized muscles.

We were frozen in fear, by fear. We were numb, imprisoned by the shoulders of some, the legs of others, the fear of everyone.

We were paralyzed. The taste of oil in our throats, on our tongues, in our heads sent us to sleep to the rhythm of the lullaby sung by the woman beside me.
