How to Pronounce Knife (Unabridged)
Bloomsbury presents How to Pronounce Knife by Souvankham Thammavongsa, read by James Tang and Kulap Vilaysack.
Winner of the Scotiabank Giller Prize.
An ex-boxer turned nail salon worker falls for a pair of immaculate hands, a mother and daughter harvest earthworms in the middle of the night, a country-music-obsessed housewife abandons her family for fantasy and a young girl's love for her father transcends language.
In this stunning debut, Souvankham Thammavongsa captures the day-to-day lives of immigrants and refugees in a nameless city, illuminating hopes, disappointments, love affairs and above all, the pursuit of a place to belong.
