On Books + this week, books that cross cultures and languages, with stories about love and crisis and food and politics. Zia Hayder Rahman was born in Bangladesh and was then educated into a new accent at Oxford. Kim Thuy was born in Vietnam, moved to Canada, and writes poetic fiction that uses French, Vietnamese and English to make sense of her experience. And then there’s reading itself – what it means to us, whether it’s a shared or a solitary experience.
