Feel a connection to this book which is bound up in moving & the stretch of displacement before being at home somewhere. The writing is lucid and beautiful. The book is told from the perspective of Binh, the chef of Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas. Binh is Vietnamese and gay. He is my favorite male protagonist thus far.
