9786167503158: Phnom Penh Noir

Many noir anthologies have inspired writers and publishers around the world to gather novelists to set noir stories in a city. When it comes to noir, not all cities are equal. The history of genocide and dislocation sets Phnom Penh apart from other places. What other city in modern times was emptied of all of his people at gun point, a city abandoned and left as a ghost town? The authors of Phnom Penh Noir take you inside the lives of Cambodians who carry that legacy of that fateful day on 17th April 1975 when the Khmer Rouge arrived and forced the population to evacuate to the countryside. The Khmer Rouge experiment resulted in radical transformation of a society that left a bloody trail, one that left almost no family untouched, and hovers close to the surface in these stories. In Phnom Penh Noir, the stories, lyrics, and cover photograph have joined legendary creative talents like Roland Joffe, James Grady and John Burdett along with a young generation of Cambodians. The noir tales unfold through multiple points of view and enrich the reading experience. Truth, mortality, regret, betrayal, and loss play out in these stories, poetry and lyrics. The authors and publishers will contribute twenty percent of their earnings from this book to selected charity organizations in Cambodia. Official website: www.phnompenhnoir.com

Review:

"Some of the stories are better than others, but all of them lend realistic details about [Phnom Penh], Cambodia, and Khmer culture in general.This is [the] best read ... while traveling in Cambodia and Thailand."
--Patrick McCoy, Lost in Translation

"You will appreciate each short story and the dark side of Cambodia's Phnom Penh... As an anthology it [deserves] to be on your bookshelf."
--Lang Reid, Chiang Mai Mail
