Making coal patties. Selling liquid soap. Shopping at a glittering shoe mecca. She's done them all living half her life in deprived-post-war-communist-Vietnam-turned-free-market. Coming to America at 29 and experiencing life here as an adult is a push towards her transcending journey to transform herself from an international student to a naturalized American, to a new self free of the dead past and her ancestors' sins. Why Do You Look at Me and See a Girl is a story written by a full-fledged bilingual who, as her adoration for the impeccable American logical trait is put into perspective, struggles to get free from the power play and biases, cultural inhibitors and prejudices that condition human behaviors, be it in Vietnam, America or Thailand. Drawing strength from her grandmother, the author debunks many -isms around her, and believes in fighting these same or new fights again and again. Knowing Vietnam and America like the palm and dorsal side of her hand, the author brings home in Why Do You Look at Me and See a Girl the multiple perspectives of the world around her. She offers one way of navigating this world.
