Mai Nguyen, a living ancestor of Oanh, is familiar with this curse. She is divorced and alienated from her younger sisters Khuyen Lam, the youngest, who claims she just owns modest coffee shops and nail salons and not Little Saigon’s underworld, and Minh Pham, the middle sister who serves as the mediator. Although Priscilla, Thuy, and Thao, Mai’s three adult children, have great occupations (one of them is John Cho’s dermatologist! ), the same cannot be said of their romantic relationships.
About the Author
Carolyn Huynh didn’t appreciate the weather sufficiently while growing up in Orange County, California. She graduated from Seattle University with a BA in journalism and the University of Washington with an MS in human-centered design. Her writing focuses on her mother’s tall tales, superstitions, the diaspora, and memories as the youngest daughter of Vietnamese exiles (both real and imaginary). She particularly enjoys reading tales about clumsy Asian ladies who never learn from their errors. She has lived all around the West Coast and now calls Los Angeles home with her dog and rabbit. She still isn’t grateful enough for the weather. While not writing, Carolyn fantasizes about sipping iced coffee on a Saigon rooftop.
