Good Scent from Strange Mountain by Robert Olen Butler

Short stories on Vietnam and Vietnamese living in Texas. I read about half the stories. They were good, but they were all short stories. It wasn’t like reading a novel. Jumpa Lahiri’s short stories on the other hand were like reading novels. One after the other. This book did win a Pulitzer, however and again LEP and my sister-in-law thought the book was terrific.
