It's impossible for me to say how much I love this book, and how envious I am of Boo for having the guts, intelligence, stamina and vision to research and write it. I'm not often one to read an entire nonfiction book straight through, but Boo's book ...more

This is a beautiful novel, clearly autobiographical. If you do not know what happened in Cambodia 1975-1979, and you would like to read a gorgeously-written novel with a female protagonist whose life is broken but somehow survives, this is the book f ...more
