Em – Kim Thuy

Ms. Thuy writes impeccable books that are short, like her titles (Ru, Vi), and yet packed with insightful content. This new book begins in Viet Nam in the 1970s, with the My Lai massacre and the fall of Saigon. Both the horrors of war and the resilience of survivors are highlighted: overall, this is a powerful book.

One thought on “Em – Kim Thuy”

  1. I really enjoyed this book. It was my first adventure into reading about the viet nam war and its aftermath. It is in many ways very sad, but it does show the resilience of people who are determined to overcome the adversity they have experienced.
