Bao Ninh - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Sorrow of War  Bao Ninh (1991) - This is the semi-autobiographical account of a soldiers experiences. The hero of the story, Kien, is a captain. After 10 years of war and months as a MIA body-collector, Kien suffers a nervous breakdown in Hanoi as he tries to re-establish a relationship with his former sweetheart. This is a great piece of work. It is gentle at times while horrific at others. It provides an alternative perspective with integrity and insight in the telling of the other sides story from a point of "Being Human" as opposed to "Being Political".
Paperback (1994) - 272 pages
