This week’s episode of Talking Book Publishing is a rare treat for us. It’s never happened in the podcast’s two seasons that we get to talk with an author on the release day of their book. Today our guest Bruce Carlin is the author of Undeterred: How One Determined Vietnamese Orphan Carved Out a Place for Himself in America. This novelistic biography is an immigrant story of resilience and determination. Bruce and Kathleen discuss his writing process, the book’s subject, dive a little into the stock market, and how these pieces combine to tell a compelling once-in-a-lifetime story.
