Exploring the anguish of immigration and the lasting effects that displacement has on a child and her family, Bui documents the story of her family鈥檚 daring escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s, and the difficulties they faced building new lives for themselves.<br /> 聽<br /> At the heart of Bui鈥檚 story is a universal struggle: While adjusting to life as a first-time mother, she ultimately discovers what it means to be a parent鈥攖he endless sacrifices, the unnoticed gestures, and the depths of unspoken love. Despite how impossible it seems to take on the simultaneous roles of both parent and child, Bui pushes through. With haunting, poetic writing and breathtaking art, she examines the strength of family, the importance of identity, and the meaning of home.<br /> 聽<br /> In what Pulitzer Prize鈥搘inning novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen calls 鈥渁 book to break your heart and heal it,鈥?<i>The Best We Could Do</i> brings to life Thi Bui鈥檚 journey of understanding, and provides inspiration to all of those who search for a better future while longing for a simpler past.

"Call me Cal. I'm the little sh*t in the blue cutoff."<br /> -If this goes south, we're grounded for sure.<br /> -Are you positive your dad won't mind?<br /> -Yeah, I can do what I want.<br /><br />"Me and my crew have been together a long time. We make a good team."<br /><br />"But I'm the one that always seems to get in trouble."<br /> -Relax, we just need a few more pieces.<br /><br />"You might say I bring the trouble on myself." <br /><br />"But that's what being a kid is all about."<br /><br />"Well, I'm 23 now and not much has changed. But if it's not broke, don't fix it! I promised my parents I'd think about getting a job but tonight is the summer kickoff party. I'm hosting which means it's time to get going. THIS was something I'd always wanted to try..."<br /><br />SHAKE THE LAKE<br /><br />Cal and his best friends set out to evade adult responsibility and chase the endless summer across the map. They land in Lake Victoria, Arizona, a party oasis in heart of BRO culture. With some small town sensibility, the outsider crew unifies the lake鈥檚 wake scene and helps save a bullied marina from snobby yacht club encroachment by staging a mammoth, end-of-season music and water sports festival against the wishes of the town鈥檚 well-to-do and a pair of hard nosed park rangers. Navigating childhood friendships, growing pains, hard work, heartbreak and new love, Cal begins to come to terms with the meaning of growing up while staying young at heart in this fish out of water romantic comedy.

<b>From the incomparable David Rakoff, a poignant, beautiful, witty, and wise novel in verse whose scope spans the twentieth century</b><br /><br />Through his books and his radio essays for NPR's <i>This American Life</i>, David Rakoff has built a deserved reputation as one of the finest and funniest essayists of our time. Written with humor, sympathy, and tenderness, this intricately woven novel proves him to be the master of an altogether different art form.<br /><br />LOVE, DISHONOR, MARRY, DIE, CHERISH, PERISH leaps cities and decades as Rakoff sings the song of an America whose freedoms can be intoxicating, or brutal.聽 <br /><br />The characters' lives are linked to each other by acts of generosity or cruelty. A daughter of Irish slaughterhouse workers in early-twentieth-century Chicago faces a desperate choice; a hobo offers an unexpected refuge on the rails during the Great Depression; a vivacious aunt provides her clever nephew a path out of the crushed dream of postwar Southern California; an office girl endures the casually vicious sexism of 1950s Manhattan; the young man from Southern California revels in the electrifying sexual and artistic openness of 1960s San Francisco, then later tends to dying friends and lovers as the AIDS pandemic devastates the community he cherishes; a love triangle reveals the empty materialism of the Reagan years; a marriage crumbles under the distinction between self-actualization and humanity; as the new century opens, a man who has lost his way finds a measure of peace in a photograph he discovers in an old box鈥攁n image of pure and simple joy that unites the themes of this brilliantly conceived work.<br /><br />Rakoff's insistence on beauty and the necessity of kindness in a selfish world raises the novel far above mere satire.聽 A critic once called Rakoff "magnificent," a word that perfectly describes this wonderful novel in verse.
