About this title


In 1968, Thom Rock started living a double life in South Vietnam. Army fatigues and Military Intelligence by day, AWOL in silk pajamas answering to Papasan Thom by night. His stories involve the suspense and intrigue of living in Ben xe Muoi, the "Sin City" of Can Tho, Vietnam. Illegal, dangerous, bizarre, stupid, funny, embarrassing and regretful all play out as elements of the experience. However, there is a balance to it all; love, compassion, friendships, and raw honesty find their place of purpose. Rock lived with Muoi, a woman of forty years, twice his age, a mother of six, a madam and marijuana dealer with cunning survival instincts. With a year and a half of living with this Vietnamese family, under conditions that most would find appalling, if not downright frightening, Rock is able to present a story that is unique, entertaining and controversial, to say the least.
