Synopsis from Barnes and Noble website
The seven stories in Nam Le's masterful collection The Boat take us across the globe, from the slums of Colombia to Iowa City; from the streets of Tehran to a foundering vessel in the South China Sea. They guide us to the heart of what it means to be human ? and herald the arrival of a remarkable new writer.

The New York Times - Michiko Kakutani
?[a] remarkable collection?Mr. Le not only writes with an authority and poise rare even among longtime authors, but he also demonstrates an intuitive, gut-level ability to convey the psychological conflicts people experience when they find their own hopes and ambitions slamming up against familial expectations or the brute facts of history?his sympathy for his characters and his ability to write with both lyricism and emotional urgency lend his portraits enormous visceral power.
