Each month I compile a list of the new romances received the previous month by the library. (You can find paper copies of this list at the end of the romance shelf.) Every time I do this bibliography, a few titles catch my eye. Here are the October romance purchases which got my attention.

Nguyen and her family left Vietnam in 1975, and relocated to Michigan. Stealing Buddha's Dinner is a memoir of the author's childhood and experiences of assimilation into American culture. This is Nguyen's only appearance in the Detroit area; and her presentation is not to be missed.
