Author Andrew Lam in conversation with Nguyen Qui Duc, host of Pacific Time, KQED Radio

In these engaging, dramatic, and personal essays, Lam introduces us to the Viet Kieu, Vietnamese nationals who fled their homes to escape political persecution in the wake of the Vietnam War. He looks back on his families' departure for California just before the fall of Saigon in 1975, describing the struggle for identity in a new country and what it means to be an immigrant, a survivor, and an American.

Andrew Lam is an award-winning syndicated writer and a frequent commentator on NPR's All Things Considered.
