The Map of Lost Memories

for Best First Novel by an American Author

“Captivating . . . has qualities any reader would wish for: adventure, romance, history and a vividly described exotic setting.” -- The Washington Post

“Fay’s extraordinary first novel has everything great historical adventure fiction should - strikingly original setting, exhilarating plot twists, and a near-impossible quest ... Every word of this evocative literary expedition feels deliberately chosen, each phrase full of meaning.” - Booklist (starred review)


A Culinary Journey Through Vietnam

The Globetrotting Gourmet calls Communion, “THE book on Vietnamese cuisine, deserving a place in every foodies’ and travelers’ library.” Winner of a Gourmand World Cookbook Award, Communion offers a feast for armchair gourmets, as well as a colorful guide for travelers hungering for their next adventure.
