“Heartbreaking tales of ordinary people lost between the extraordinary circumstances of history. Bitter and beautiful all at once.”Sandra Cisneros “We call it naturalization, but these bright, authentic, well-made stories both personalize and illuminate just how unnatural the first twenty years in America felt for thousands of Vietnamese families who fled to San Francisco to escape the Vietnam War. Angie Chau writes with humor, intensity and forgiveness about lives full of danger, insult, momentary reprieve, unending tenacity and undying hope.”Pam Houston “”Quiet As They Come” is a beautifully rendered, intimate, and dramatic story of family and country. Each character is drawn with such honesty and generosity, such insight and imagination. Angie Chau has impressed and enthralled me and I was very sorry to come to the last page.”Karen Joy Fowler “Quiet As They Come” announces the arrival of an astonishing literary talent with a great deal to say about the intricacies of family life, coming of age, emigration, andabove andabove allthe treasures buried in the human heart.
