I recently was approached by a publisher to be considered for a collection of Rwandan genocide survival stories. When I finished VIETNAMERICA late last year, I was so emotionally drained that the last thing I could imagine doing next was tackling another true story of family trauma and horror in the context of a violent war—much less a series of stories that examine and explore the various atrocities and outcomes of a human massacre witnessed within my own lifetime. But after reading the survivor testimonials recorded so far, I was so moved that I immediately wanted to throw my name in the hat for consideration.
