This book in poetry form is written by two women - - one is Vietnamese and the other is American who was in Vietnam as the wife of a news correspondent. The tales are of the confrontations, juxtaposition, and over-riding humanness of two cultures. Some of the Vietnamese experiences were so vividly painful that I could not read them though without resting my head for respite. The American woman discusses her Vietnamese encounters in the 1970's. Nga talks about her whole life - - from Vietnam under the French, to China, back to Vietnam and then to the United States. She tells of her marriage, her family and her uprootedness, all of the time being deeply rooted to her culture and self.
