Beauty of the Everyday: Kim Thúy (2015)

Kim Thúy and her family fled Vietnam as boat people, arriving in Canada via a refugee camp when she was ten. With a previous career as a restaurateur and with degrees in law, linguistics and translation, she has now authored two poetic novels: Ru which mirrors her refugee experience and Mãn, a tale of love, homeland and identity. The vivacious and thoughtful Thúy discusses her work and life with Kate De Goldi.
