Souvanhkam Thammavongsa

With spare prose and a subtle mastery of tone, Souvankham Thammavongsa draws upon her childhood to offer glimpses into the daily lives of refugees: their desires, disappointments, and triumphs. Born in a Lao refugee camp in Thailand, Thammavongsa was raised in Toronto where she still resides. Her personal journey empowers this debut collection of fiction. How to Pronounce Knife,“cuts to the core of the immigrant reality like a knife – however you pronounce it.”
