Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A searing novel from Vietnam's most popular writer and one of its most famous dissidents. One of the most exciting voices to emerge from modern Vietnam belongs to Duong Thu Huong, whose previously published novels, including Memories of a Pure Spring, Novel Without a Name, and Paradise of the Blind, are as highly acclaimed in this country as they are controversial in her own. Now available for the first time in America, Huong's first novel is a brilliantly spun tale of a young woman who marries her professor because she so admires his idealism. When he sells out everything he believes in order to support her, her love goes. Only when they are both beyond illusions can they try again for a real relationship. Deeply lyrical and wholly believable, this early novel is illuminated by the haunting language and unflinching honesty that have led critics to hail Huong.
