I love this, Thao! What an exciting trip!
Chi Thao! I’m so happy for you and the fruition of your labor and dreams. I’m only a quarter of the way through and there have been moments and lines that were crafted just so well! 👏🏼 “There are unbearable things…but sometimes, the things that pull out the most longing are the quiet rituals you never thought you’d miss.”
Thanks for sharing your 48-hours and all the joy!
Waiting to hear about any Boston-area visits to give you an IRL hug and get a signed copy. Bravo! Xoxo
Big and heartfelt congratulations Thao. As a fellow Vietnamese-American woman and writer, a win for you feels like a win for us all and our API community. Thank you for this book and being so generous with sharing your process with us all. I'm taking my time with Banyan Moon and savoring it - I already feel so moved by the portrayals of each character.
Soak it all in! I sat down to start the book and I think I got up maybe three times to go to the bathroom and get water/snacks before finishing with a very full heart and a breath of satisfaction. Such a beautiful way to chronicle the Vietnamese American experience through the eyes of three very different women.
Congratulations on your book’s publication and being the Read with Jenna pick for July! I’m looking forward to reading your book
What a thrill! Thank you for sharing! Could not be more excited for you and your gorgeous book. ❤️
Oh this was so exciting to read, what a whirlwind! (And omg, Hoda!!)
Congratulations thao! I'm reading and enjoying your book so far! I. Have a 7 week old so it will take me a while but lovely so far
Catching up on issues, but LOVED reading this Thao! What an exciting time!!
