Review: The Best We Could Do

To truly understand ourselves, we must deeply look into our own history. In Thi Bui’s graphic memoir, The Best We Could Do, she traces her family’s journey from a war-torn Vietnam to the United States. She illuminates the human experience through breathtaking art and narrative.

Thi Bui examines what it means to be a parent, to be human, to be alive, and to be free. Her story reveals that the consequences of war is far more than the casualties and the torn-down buildings. For those who lived through the war, their history becomes the essence of who they are. The Best We Could Do is a beautiful and a compelling story that makes for an unforgettable and a timely read. Bui’s story carries such magnitude that it will resonate with everyone.
