Vietnam, My Love: the title engenders all the multiplicty of meaning that one finds on each page of this extraordinary novel by Frank Vinh. Does the title refer to Vietnam as the object of a patriot's love? Does the title echo the plaintive cry of a place where one loses his life, his family, and his heritage?
What Frank Vinh has done, as exemplified by the title, is to show the parallel universe of irony that envelops the entire experience his characters feel, the full range of emotions all Americans of a certain generation remember about Vietnam...About the Author:
A descendent of the Vietnamese Royal Family, Frank Vinh grew up in Hue, the ancient capital of Vietnam. He moved to the United States in 1970, when Vietnam slid deeper into the war. He began a professional career in the film industry as Associate Producer of the Hollywood classic, 'The Quiet American', directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz. He also wrote and directed "We Want To Live", a film honored at the Asian Film Festival in Seoul, South Korea.
After the fall of Saigon in 1975, Vinh devoted most of his time to help the desperate plight of the Vietnamese Boat People, stranded in various refugee camps in South East Asia. He wrote 'Vietnam, My Love' to put forward a different perspective of the consequences of the war in Vietnam, one which involves the hearts of ordinary people from both Vietnam and the United States of America.
