Vietnamese Memories #2: Little Saigon

Clément Baloup

This book tells the personal stories of five family members, over five different time periods, as they are respectively forced to leave their home country of Vietnam when outside forces or inner turmoil shatter their normal lives. Each story follows the journey of a family member as they must leave everything behind, adapt to a new country and culture, and live with the nostalgia of their homeland and their people. Clément Baloup initmately traces the paths of those who went to great lengths to seek asylum in unfamiliar lands, and against all odds, established prosperous communities rooted in the colorful culture and experiences of their past, while fostering a future unhindered by the political and personal turmoil that haunts their pasts.
