Wandering Souls by Cecile Pin
Inspired by Pin's personal family history, Wandering Souls tells the forgotten story of the Vietnamese boat people – southeast Asian refugees who fled post-war Vietnam in the late seventies – and how their collective trauma and loss would both cement them to their history and have lasting impact on generations to come.
In this interview with Current Read host Sam Herbst, Pin speaks about writing during the pandemic, her creative process, the research that went into Wandering Souls and what key message she hopes readers will take from the book.
She also gives us her thoughts on the southeast Asian diaspora, and gives us a sneak peek into what she's working on next.
