Format: Hardcover
I feel like to in order to appreciate this book you must be a Vietnamese man born in the early 50's, have seen the effects of the Vietnam war. I am one of those men and I read this book in Vietnamese version. Duong Thu Huong has courage, substance and quality in her writing. I haven't enjoyed a good Vietnamese book in a very long time and this one did it! I highly recommend it.

Huong should be nominated for a Nobel prize. Her writing is superb, even in translation, and all her books are compelling, wonderful, universal.
