The Sorrow of War: A Novel of North Vietnam
by Bao Ninh
This is a beautifully written story of a North Vietnamese man who lost his youth, his love, and his faith in the war. A best-seller in Vietnam, The Sorrow of War is Bao Ninh's first novel.
"The violent upheavals of war have given painful birth to many outstanding works of literature, ranging from The Naked and the Dead to the poems of Wilfred Owen. To these must now be added Bao Ninh's The Sorrow of War."
"An unputdownable novel. This book should be required reading for anyone in American politics or policy-making. It should win the Pulitzer Prize, but it won't. It's too gripping for that." Paperback 233 pages - 5 3/4" x 8 1/2" - (4/96)
