Afterparties: Anthony Veasna So

£14.99

Seamlessly transitioning between the absurd and the tender-hearted, balancing acerbic humour with sharp emotional depth, ‘Afterparties’ offers an expansive portrait of the lives of Cambodian-Americans. As the children of refugees carve out radical new paths for themselves in California, they shoulder the inherited weight of the Khmer Rouge genocide and grapple with the complexities of race, sexuality, friendship, and family. A high school badminton coach and failing grocery store owner tries to relive his glory days by beating a rising star teenage player. Two drunken brothers attend a wedding afterparty and hatch a plan to expose their shady uncle’s snubbing of the bride and groom. A queer love affair sparks between an older tech entrepreneur trying to launch a ‘safe space’ app and a disillusioned young teacher obsessed with Moby-Dick.
