Lac Su’s “I Love Yous are for White People”

If you don’t know who Lac Su is, then GET OUT OF HERE. No wait, don’t. Please? Stay. We promise to not yell at you anymore. His book, I Love Yous Are for White People: A Memoir (P.S.) ($10.19) covers his childhood from escaping Vietnam, growing up in poverty in Southern California and joining the gangster lifestyle. It’s a must read for everyone looking to understand the Southeast Asian immigrant experience, whether you’re from the heartland of middle America, the streets of the ghetto or upscale Beverly Hills.

The book also recently won the Theodor S. Geisel Award for “Best of the Best” Published Books, presented by the San Diego Book Awards Association. That’s proof that plenty of people love Lac’s work, and you will too — even if you don’t actually say it, you know, out loud.
