The unexpected consequences of the Vietnamese diaspora are explored by Andrew Lam, the award-winning author of Perfume Dreams. From cuisine and martial arts to sex and self-esteem, this new essay collection shines light on the bridges and crossroads where two hemispheres meld into one worldwide "immigrant nation." While the space between East and West continues to shrink in this age of globalization, some cultural gaps remain. Richard Rodriguez is an essayist and journalist who writes about class, ethnicity, and race and is author of Brown: The Last Discovery of America.
