This review is from: Finding the Dragon Lady: The Mystery of Vietnam's Madame Nhu (Hardcover)
This is a fascinating and informative book. For those of us who lived in the 'Vietnam Era' aware of the war but who were not particularly knowledgeable of the causative issues, Demery provides helpful context. For those aware of and intrigued by the mystery of Madame Nhu during this period, Demery provides a very intimate account of who she was and how she thought. And for anybody it is a story of the personality, persistence, and patience of an author who had become mesmerized by a central figure in Vietnamese history and sought, against all odds, to get her story told. A wonderful read!
