I hope this book gets more press as it was an exquisite read. I know it won't appeal to everyone, but I absolutely loved it. It's a very intimate story, told in first person. Most of it reads like poetry and is shared between the narrator and her lover, during their initial meeting in Montreal and then their reunion in Cambodia. The story deals with devastating aspects of the Cambodian genocide and political problems. The writing is sensual and rich, and the story is both poetic and sad.
