Afterparties: Stories, Anthony Veasna So 

“[This is] one of my absolute favorite collections of short stories I’ve ever read,” Soriano says. So, a Cambodian American author, died unexpectedly just before the collection was published. “He was just 28 years old, but he left behind a dazzling book. I’ve never really read anything so full of both laugh-out-loud humor and also just really complex insight into a refugee community and the generational pain that people carry, from the young people who are trying to make lives for themselves, both supporting their parents and their aunts and great aunts, but also separate from them; to the difficulties of some of the characters who are queer within an already marginalized community.”
