Product description

Review

A gut-wrenching story, told with honesty, restraint, and dignity.--Ha Jin, author of Waiting

Intelligent and morally aware...[Him] tells us what it was like to struggle to survive while others played out utopian dreams.

An inspiring story that draws hope from horror.

There are few books that give a refugee's point of view as clearly and passionately as Him's.

Astonishing and heartbreaking...Written in spare, visual prose that makes the world it describes tangible.--Katherine A. Powers

A touching and illuminating human account and should not be missed by anyone around the world.--Le Ly Hayslip, author of When Heaven and Earth Changed Places --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Chanrithy Him, born in 1965, lives in Eugene, Oregon, where she works for the Khmer Adolescent Project, studying post-traumatic stress disorder among Cambodians. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
