The Best We Could Do: An Illustrated Memoir

Thi Bui

The Best We Could Do explores the anguish of immigration and the lasting effects that displacement has on a child. Thi Bui documents her family’s daring escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s and the diffiulties they faced building new lives for themselves in America. At the heart of Bui’s story is a universal struggle: adjusting to life as a first-time mother.

With haunting, poetic writing and breathtaking art, The Best We Could Do examines the strength of family, the importance of identity, and the meaning of home, providing inspiration to all who search for a better future while longing for a simpler past.
