Product description


"So sharp with pain that when I read it, the words plunged into me like a knife" (Jon Swain Sunday Times)

"There can be absolutely no doubt about the innate power of [Ung's] story, the passion with which she tells it or its enduring importance" (Washington Post Book World)

"Ung's memoir should serve as a reminder that some history is best not left just to historians but to those left behind when the terror ends" (Booklist)

"I was deeply affected by Loung’s book. It deepened my understanding of how children experience war and are affected by the emotional memory of it" (Angelina Jolie Pitt)

Book Description

Soon to be a major film, an unforgettable narrative of war crimes and desperate actions from a childhood survivor of Cambodia's brutal Pol Pot regime
