Following the smash hits Ru and Man, Kim Thuy’s Vi tells the story of a coddled youngest daughter forced to leave her father behind as she flees the Vietnam War for Canada and beyond. Meanwhile, Kerri Sakamoto’s Floating City returns to the lasting effects of Japanese-Canadian internment through the eyes of Frankie Hanesaka, a young businessman from Port Alberni rekindling his ambitions in postwar Toronto.
