Lê’s “Gangster” Not Just Another Immigration Memoir (tags)
Lê Thi Diem Thúy was brought to this country from Viet Nam by her father in 1978, when she was six, but her book “The Gangster We Are All Looking For,” honored this year by the San Diego Public Library and PBS as the 2011 “One Book, One San Diego,” isn’t your ordinary immigrant’s memoir. Presented as a novel — which allows Lê to tap her childhood for material without having to be bound by literal truth — “Gangster” is written in an almost poetic prose style, rich in nature imagery, characteristic of many Asian writers who learned English as a second language. Introducing, reading from and commenting on the book at the Public Library downtown on February 2, Lê gave a presentation touching on a lot of the issues raised in her book, including culture clashes, the role of the imagination and language as a force that can tear people apart as much as it can bring them together.
Dissent or Treason (tags)
Our sewers are yet again spewing the rant of anti-American Leftists. Are they guilty of treason or are they simply excersizing free speech. To be convicted of Treason in our court system they must provide aid and comfort and commit an overt act plus have the intent to betray and there must be two witnesses. Looks to me like we could get a conviction on Sean Penn but Meyer London might be a bit more difficult.
