In the “Author’s Note” at the tail end of Stealing Buddha’s Dinner, Bich Minh Nguyen writes that her memoir revolves around the “anxieties” inherent in the “immigrant’s dilemma to blend in or remain apart.” For your final essay I’d like you to compare Nguyen’s memoir and Dinaw Mengestu’s novel, The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears.
