Description -

Once wealthy landowners, Thong Van Pham's family was shattered by the tumultuous events of the twentieth century:  the festering French occupation of Indochina, the Japanese invasion during World War II, and the Vietnam War.

 

Told in dazzling chapters that alternate between events in the past and those closer to the preent, The Eaves of Heaven brilliantly re-creates the trials of everyday life in Vietnam as endured by one man, from the fall of Hanoi and the collapse of French colonialism to the frenzied evacuation of Saigon.  Pham offers a rare portal into a lost world...

The Eaves of Heaven, A Life in Three Wars by Andrew X. Pham
