exiled coverExiled is author Katya Cengel’s recent book about Cambodian refugees in California. In the light of current refugee policies, it’s instructive to learn about how some of these residents face deportation and uncertainty if they run afoul of U.S. law.

Hovering in the background of the story: the Cambodian genocide, in which millions perished in the late 1970s.

Cengel spoke with KRCB news director Steve Mencher about the origins of her book.
