Within these 300 pages, you will find 70+ English short stories of a Vietnamese generation full of optimism and angst. These edgy stories run the gamut from quirky parents, cultural confusion, child abuse, bi-cultural marriage, and sexuality. This book will make you laugh and cry.

The Vietnamese living overseas are a special group of people. We are a people without a land. But, that doesn't mean we don’t have a culture. Regardless of our varying grasps of the Vietnamese language and our cultural heritage, we are bounded by our struggles, our values, and our parents’ quirkiness. In our hearts, if nowhere else, we are Vietnamese.

The I Am Vietnamese anthology aims to inspire and connect those like us to provide a sense of community while we struggle on own personal journeys, and to remind to us that we are not alone. We share the same hardships — overprotective parents, the inability to communicate, the struggle to incorporate western and eastern ideals, and the fear of disappointing others. As we read personal accounts of those like us, we feel inspired, connected, and like we belong.
