Just received this gem. Also laughed so hard at the extra baby book about panettone. Our late dad loved them and we haven’t tried it as adults. It’s been a weird year in a pandemic and I am extremely grateful for being able to connect so deeply to someone’s story and these images. Thank you!

Nguyen is a very talented artist and storyteller. There's a lot of warmth here, all of it as natural and as sweet as the mangos on the trees in this memoir.

Lovely story. The images are vivid and the storytelling puts you in Nguyen and his family’s shoes.
