A novel by Vietnamese American about the taste of exile.


Monique Truong was born and raised in Vietnam, and moved to the US after the fall of Saigon. She was an intellectual property attorney in New York, but now devotes herself full-time to writing. Her short fiction and essays have been taught in universities across America. This is her first novel.


"It is beautifully written, a cooking up of love and self to feed the devouring appetites of Gerturde Stein and Alice B. Toklas that is nothing less than a masterpiece of delicate and -naturally- existentialist hedonism." -- Andro Linklater The Spectator 20041217 "The Book of Salt reminded me of how thrilling really fine writing can be, and how rarely one sees it" -- Sarah Waters
