CHF 12.90 / EUR 11.90

Nostalgia for Countryland is a poetic and evocative story set in a small village in North Vietnam’s delta. Nham, an innocent country boy of sixteen, lives with his mother, sister, and sister-in-law and must support the family, working all day in the rice fields, because his father and older brother are away. One day a neighbor asks him to pick up her visiting niece, Quyen, who has been living overseas. Quyen's journey back to her home village is a sentimental one, spurred by memories of pastoral pleasures, but the world she encounters now is harsher and more difficult. Nham, however, is smitten by her, and Dang Nhat Minh weaves a story of a young man’s awakening and an expatriate's realization of the realities that now exist in her countryland. (Geoffrey Gilmore)
