520    A letter from a son to a mother who cannot read. Written 
       when the speaker, Little Dog, is in his late twenties, the
       letter unearths a family's history that began before he 
       was born— a history whose epicenter is rooted in Vietnam— 
       and serves as a doorway into parts of his life his mother 
       has never known, all of it leading to an unforgettable 
       revelation. At once a witness to the fraught yet 
       undeniable love between a single mother and her son, it is
       also a brutally honest exploration of race, class, and 
       masculinity. Asking questions central to our American 
       moment, immersed as we are in addiction, violence, and 
       trauma, but undergirded by compassion and tenderness, this
       book is as much about the power of telling one's own story
       as it is about the obliterating silence of not being 
       heard.
