Bitter in the Mouth is the second novel from 2010 Guggenheim Fellow and New York Public Library Young Lions Fiction Award winner Monique Truong. Her first novel, The Book of Salt, was a New York Times Notable Fiction Book. In Bitter in the Mouth, protagonist Linda Hammerick has many secrets including the fact that she has synesthesia—she tastes the words that she hears and speaks. With equal parts humor and poignancy, Truong evokes how profoundly individual our experiences of the world can be and how we learn all too quickly to suppress our differences in order to fit in to social norms. - Ladies Home Journal Book Club
