Bamboo & butterflies: from refugee to citizen
BAMBOO & BUTTERFLIES: From Refugee to Citizen offers a fresh glimpse into our culture, its customs and holidays, our confusing laws and almost impossible English grammar, and our fetish for being on time. This sequel to the author's award-winning TO DESTROY YOU IS NO LOSS: The Odyssey of a Cambodian Family follows family members as they pick up the shards of their shattered lives in America after fleeing four years of slavery under the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia.
