Fifteen short stories depicting Vietnamese-Americans.

From the back cover:
"A jewel of the short story writer's craft and a real pleasure to read. His depictions of Vietnamese-Americans are as moving as Amy Tan's of Chinese-Americans; and Butler's is the greater artistic achievement because he hadd to exercise far more imagination to enter the minds and hearts of his subjects."

(Gee, I wonder how Amy Tan feels about a review like this?)

Will be another horizon-broadening book.
