Praise
"[A] moving investigation of invented families and small-town subterfuge, a search for self heightened by the legacy of Vietnam and the flavors of language."
"Salt, bitter, exiled, estranged. Truong's work begins to take on its own distinctive flavor, a fusion of the palpable and the intangible.....[I]t's still a rare, refreshing palate -- one to savor."
From the Publisher
Annotation Cursed by the dying words of her grandmother, a young girl discovers a peculiar aptitude for tasting words themselves on her palate, as if they were flavors. This unusual gift separates the girl from her family and friends as she grows into womanhood, until her journey's circuit brings her home at last, where a stirring family secret waits. Monique Truong's novel BITTER IN THE MOUTH recounts a fantastic fable about what happens when communication seizes the tongue twice over.
