Ru by Kim Thúy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
An arrangement of poetic vignettes. On the surface, Ru explores family, war, living as a refugee and integration into a new country. Underneath, Thuy ruminates on culture, conflict, language, love and memory. There’s a whole lot going on in this slender, beautiful novel.
What do you take with you when you flee your homeland? It is not what you think.
