About this title

Synopsis:

Nathan Monroe is a 28-year-old American living in Saigon who falls in love with a poor but talented Vietnamese painter. When he fails to protect their love from her desperate chase for a better life in America, his safety net appears in the form of Anthony, an old domineering friend in Hanoi who hires Nathan at his real estate firm. Only much later does Nathan discover that Anthony has intended all along for him to take over his job and family so that he, too, can escape and start his life over in America. Lotusland dramatizes the power imbalances between Westerners living abroad and between Westerners and Vietnamese - in love and friendship, in the consequences of war, and in the pursuit of dreams.

From the Back Cover:

The lives of two American friends in Vietnam diverge sharply when one chooses the path of a writer and the other strikes it rich in real estate. Their lives further conflict when they find themselves clashing over the Vietnamese women they've come to love.
