About this product
- DescriptionA long journey to freedom. When Xuan first encountered the attack during the Vietnam War, she thought the sound of the rockets and artillery was caused by thunder. Xuan, along with many other children in her neighborhood would incently look for bullet shells or chase after the leaflets of propaganda falling from the sky, t kwing the imminent danger surrounding them. One might think whoever lived in Vietnam during the war would constantly worry about death, but through the eyes of a child, the war and politics were irrelevant. This story is t a story of war, but is truly a coming of age story, of culture and family dynamics. It will show you the heart of a family from the perspective of a little girl, who was the seventh child in a family of ten, living in South Vietnam in 1968. Her parents later on secretly committed a series of crimes that would change their lives forever.
- Author BiographyI've written a book and would like to share with you what happened to me and other South Vietnamese after the American troops had left. Even though the war was decades ago, I felt it was my duty to write this memoir as part of my contribution to history and my family. As a native Vietnamese born in 1966, my parents took my siblings and me on a long journey out of Vietnam and communist rule. I never would have thought then that I would go on to graduate from the University of Oklahoma and write a memoir in English, The Red Watermelon Seeds.
