“The Happiest Refugee is both Anh Do’s debut in the literary industry, and a bruisingly honest depiction of his life to date. The book starts with Do’s parents meeting and falling in love in war torn Vietnam, and tracks a young Anh as he and his family journey from their homeland to a refugee camp in Malaysia and finally Australia." B. Owen Baxter ("Anh Do - Author", 2016)
