Another Gripping Memoir

I Love Yous Are For White People, by Lac Su is another new memoir that you won't want to miss. It is a memoir at its most affecting, depicting the struggles that countless immigrants have faced in their pursuit of a better life and the American Dream.

Su's family fled Vietnam when their lives were threatened by the Communist régime. After enduring an arduous and death-defying boat journey, they were saved by a naval cruiser near Hong Kong, and eventually ended up in Los Angeles where they soon found out that the American Dream was not all it was cracked up to be. Living in squalid conditions and barely making ends meet, Su's family struggled to forge its identity in a cultural hodge podge that often invited more trouble than solace.

This memoir, which trains a lens on immigrant life in America, is perfect for college classrooms, or as an all-campus or Freshman read. If you'd like to have Lac Su come speak on your campus, please contatct our Speaker's Bureau.
