Description

In this heartfelt memoir, Dana Sachs takes the reader on a sensual and textured voyage to a country most Americans think about only in terms of war. A finalist for the Independent Publisher Book Award, this deftly written narrative reveals how Sachs settled in with slick, warmhearted Tung and his quietly tenacious wife Huong in Hanoi and made a place for herself in "enemy" territory. With vivid descriptions of the communitythe noodle stalls and roaring motorcycles, the vestiges of French colonialism, and the encroachment of glittering high-risesSachs explores the tenuous balance between the traditions of old Vietnam and a country in the throes of modernization. Sachs's honest depiction of her difficulties renders her triumphs and love for the country and its people all the more poignant and compelling. This edition includes a new afterword by the author. "
