From the Publisher:

We are very pleased, and honored to be the publishers of A Long Way from Saigon. When we first saw the manuscript, it was obvious that the author had poured her heart and soul into the writing. Although many books have been published on the subject of the Vietnam war, few were written from the point of view of a Vietnamese civilian. Josephine Stockton's book gives us a unique insight into civilian life in the Saigon of the war years. Her journey from bar girl to dignity is truly inspirational.

Jim Criswell, Publisher
Truman Publishing Company

About the Author:

Josephine Stockton was born Phin Hang, of Cambodian lineage in Saigon, South Vietnam, and was raised amid the strife and uncertainty of a war-torn country and the pressures of helping to support a strained and often indifferent family. Barely escaping the terrors of war and the degradation of life as a bar girl, Josephine carved out a distinguished career and made a life in America with her one true love, Daniel Stockton, with whom she shared a tumultuous but rewarding twenty-five years.

Having lost her husband to cancer in 1999, Josephine carries on from her home in Columbus, Ohio, focusing much of her attention on her children and grandchildren. She also contributes her talents and resources to aiding the less fortunate in Vietnam.
