G.B. Tran’s graphic memoir Vietnamerica: A Family’s Journey (2010) is a text marked by fragmentation: from its non-linear narrative to its cover image of many deconstructed faces held within the disconnected pieces of a dissolving puzzle, the memoir’s most compelling trope is of brokenness. Tran’s family is broken – compromised by occupation and colonialism, severed by a nation at war and fractured by the trauma of displacement as refugees from their home in Vietnam. This article asserts, however, that non-linearity, deconstruction and visual tropes of fracture are strategies towards envisioning the migrant memory as a generative space that promises constant reconnection to the world, rather than defining it as a space bereft of its roots.
