312 – The Best We Could Do

We pick up “The Best We Could Do” by artist-author Thi Bui to continue our Best of 2017 series. This book chronicles the journey of Bui’s family and their immigration from Vietnam to the US. We talk about the incredible richness of this story in how it captures character, context, and suspense. Bui’s retelling of her family story works on almost every level as we fawn all over this book. Plus, we talk about Magic, Movies, and Frank Miller.
