Reading Ladies Book Club Review

Sep 20, 2020 by Lan Cao
"I’m definitely recommending Family in Six Tones for readers who might work with or know refugees, for those who are interested in reading more about the Vietnam War from a refugee’s perspective, and for fans of thought-provoking memoir. It is an honest, heartfelt, detailed, and ambitious read.” —Reading Ladies Book Club

“The dual narrative makes Family in Six Tones so unique and elevates the storytelling. What results is a gripping memoir that allows the reader to understand the lasting impact of what it means to be a refugee.” —Talk Nerdy Book Blog

English Plus Language Review

Sep 20, 2020 by Lan Cao
"Family in Six Tones is prefaced with a line from T. S. Eliot, “Do I dare disturb the universe?” Lan Cao’s portion of this autobiography will disturb the universe of many Americans who lived through the sixties and seventies. Harlan’s portion may disturb contemporary readers. What a story they both have.” -- English Plus Language
