8/11/2020: New memoir strikes a chord in this time of isolation
In a time of isolation (and reading, hopefully), Tran's debut memoir, "Sigh, Gone: A Misfit's Memoir of Great Books, Punk Rock, and the Fight to Fit In" strikes resonant chord.
In 1980s Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Phuc Tran was one of few Asian kids. After fleeing Vietnam amid the fall of Saigon in 1975, he and his parents resettled in Carlisle, where Tran spent his childhood and adolescence. This recounts in stunning detail his coming of age in white, small-town America.
