Riassunto: Now available for the first time in North America, Huongs 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.
About the Author: Duong Thu Huong was born in 1947 in Vietnam. At the age of twenty, she led a Communist Youth Brigade to the front during the Vietnam War, and was one of three survivors. A vocal advocate of human rights and democratic political reform, she was expelled from the Communist Party in 1989 and was imprisoned without trial for her political beliefs. Her work is currently banned by the Vietnamese authorities and she is not allowed to travel abroad. She lives and writes in Hanoi.
