Paradise of the blind by Thu Hương Dương ( Book )
14 editions published between 1988 and 2002 in English and held by 1,201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Now, at last, comes the first Vietnamese novel ever translated and published in North America. Duong Thu Huong is Vietnam's most beloved and outspoken novelist. In Paradise of the Blind she has created a devastating portrait of three women fighting to maintain their dignity in a society that expects ever greater sacrifices from them. Paradise of the Blind is a rich, sensuous journey through a Vietnam never seen before. In images of astonishing grace and power, and through her unforgettable gallery of women, Duong Thu Huong dazzles the reader with her ability to evoke the colors, the foods, the smells, and the age-old rituals of her country. At the center of the novel is Hang, a young woman forced to grow up too fast in the slums of Hanoi and the turbulence of modern Vietnam. Duong Thu Huong brilliantly captures Hang's rebellion against her mother and the loneliness of her search for self. There is Hang's mother, who watches, powerless, as her life is shattered by a fanatical political campaign led by her own brother. And there is the mysterious Aunt Tam, who has accumulated wealth and bitterness in equal parts and seeks to pass on both to her niece, Hang. The intoxicating beauty of the Vietnamese countryside, the hunger, the pride, the endurance of ordinary Vietnamese people confronted with the hypocrisy and corruption that surround them - all are here in this moving and lyrical novel. With the publication of Paradise of the Blind comes the introduction of a world-class storyteller whose extraordinary sensitivity and courage have captivated a generation of Vietnamese readers

Memories of a Pure Spring tells the story of a singer and her composer husband and explores their relationship's passionate in the midst of war -- and tragic end in its aftermath. Huong portrays the chaos of modern Vietnam, vividly depicting the betrayal she and a generation of Vietnamese artists and writers experienced after the war: the persecution of those unwilling to bend to the censors, the inhuman conditions inside "re-education" prison camps, the midnight escapes by boat, and the corruption that gnaws at the heart of the new regime they brought to power
No man's land : a novel by Thu Hương Dương ( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This tragic twist of fate sets the stage for Duong Thu Huong's tale of three individuals whose destinies are inextricably linked and irrevocably altered by the absurdity of war. As the riveting story unfolds, each of the parties in this fateful love triangle struggles to reconcile personal happiness with traditional values of duty and selflessness. Together, these characters offer a devastating portrait of a people sacrificed on the altar of war and to a cult of heroism."--BOOK JACKET
Beyond illusions by Thu Hương Dương ( Book )
10 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Originally published in Vietnam in 1987, Beyond Illusions established the author as one of the major voices of her generation, selling more than 100,000 copies, an astonishing figure given the then impoverished state of the country. Now available for the first time in translation, this daring debut novel is sure to confirm Huong's international reputation as both the most lyrical and the most lucid analyst of her country. This arresting work opens with a woman named Linh staring at her sleeping husband, Nguyen, with a mixture of bewilderment and disgust. She strains to remember how she, as a young student, once linked her destiny to his. A scruffy yet romantic professor of literature, Nguyen had captivated Linh with his youthful optimism and lofty moral values. During their first years together, the couple struggled to make ends meet in the penury and deprivation of postwar Vietnam. But when Nguyen left academia to become a journalist, he confronted the harsh reality of the Party and the crushing weight of its bureaucracy. Torn between his outrage at the rampant corruption and hypocrisy of the Communist party, and the need to provide for his family, Nguyen ultimately surrendered to the propaganda machine, censoring his own articles and fabricating statistics to keep his job. Having recently discovered the truth about her husband, Linh's heroic vision of him is now shattered and she decides to leave him rather than betray their shared principles. But soon, she too must confront the realities of a country where power has corrupted even love, where fear has silenced all but the bravest, and only flatterers and opportunists survive

" ... An intimate, imagined account of the final months in the life of President Ho Chi Minh at an isolated mountaintop compound where he is imprisoned both physically and emotionally, weaving his story in with those of his wife's brother-in-law, an elder in a small village town, and a close friend and political ally, to explore how we reconcile the struggles of the human heart with the external world."--Provided by publisher

L'histoire d'un combattant au coeur de la guerre du Vietnam. Mêlant crudité et compassion, ce récit évoque le quotidien des soldats, l'absurdité de la guerre et l'horreur du système totalitaire. La brutalité des combats coexiste avec le courage et la solidarité, la bêtise guerrière côtoie l'engagement idéaliste et le rêve d'un Vietnam nouveau cohabite avec le machisme le plus ordinaire
