Bookclub – Endless Field by Nguyễn Ngọc Tư & The Floating Lives by Nguyễn Phan Quang Bình – POSTPONED

May 10 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

MAY BOOKCLUB IS POSTPONED DUE TO COVID=19 RESTRICTIONS IN HANOI AND WE HOPE TO RESCHEDULE FOR JUNE.  MORE INFO WILL FOLLOW IN DUE COURSE. THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING

“Endless Field is a tale of Mekong Delta natives, marking
Nguyễn Ngọc Tư’s perceptive insight and sympathy for farmers (and people
in general). Love, revenge, nostalgia, regret, and exposure of dark corners
of souls permeate the whole story, the characters being thus more real.
Endless Field, made into the 2010 film titled The Floating Lives, has
already been translated and published in Korea, China, France, Germany,
and Sweden, where it has received much praise.” (
from Goodreads)
