Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On June 8, 1972, nine-year-old Kim Phuc, severely burned by napalm, ran from her blazing village in South Vietnam and into the eye of history. Her photograph-one of the most unforgettable images of the twentieth century-was seen around the world and helped turn public opinion against the Vietnam War. This book is the story of how that photograph came to be-and the story of what happened to that girl after the camera shutter closed. Award-winning biographer Denise Chong's portrait of Kim Phuc-who eventually defected to Canada and is now a Unesco spokesperson-is a rare look at the Vietnam War from the Vietnamese point-of-view and one of the only books to describe everyday life in the wake of this war and to probe its lingering effects on all its participants.

Synopsis:

Kim Phuc was nine years old in 1972. Severely burned by napalm, she ran from her burning village and her dramatic escape was famously captured on film. Denise Chong relates Kim's experience and recovery in this astonishing biography and history of America's shameful war.
