Meet the Author

Monique Truong
Monique Truong
A former New York City attorney, Truong gave up the legal life for the literary one when she quit her job to attend the Yaddo writers' colony. During this time, Truong reveals in our exclusive interview, "I temped and worked part time as an attorney in order to pay my rent and loans. I still hated every moment of it, but at least now I knew that the hours I was putting in were buying me months of worth of writing time."

Good To Know

in our interview, Truong shared some fun facts about herself with us:

"I can't drive. I took the written test when I was 16 and passed (of course, I passed; I was a geek and studied). I took the driving test twice when I was in high school and failed miserably both times. I'm mobility-challenged in other ways as well. I can't ride a bike, roller skate, ice skate, or rollerblade. I can walk (short distances) and am very proficient at taking public transportations of all kinds."

"I learned how to cook by watching my mother (who is an amazing cook) and from reading cookbooks. When my family first came to the U.S. as refugees in 1975, we lived in a very small town in North Carolina. I had very few friends (OK, I had one), and I spent a great deal of time reading books of all kinds. I began to read cookbooks because I had this idea that if I ate American food I would become more American (and have more friends). I was six years old and this plan made sense to me. I needed to learn how to make chocolate chip cookies, devil's food cake, meatloaf, etc. During my elementary school years, I read The Betty Crocker Cookbook from cover to cover, even those pages about how to set a festive table (the Mexican theme intrigued me)."
