"Reading this important writer, we can understand the consequences of the history we've been through together. His work reconciles former enemies, and mends wounded people and nations." --Maxine Hong Kingston
..".[An] elegantly construction collection by one of Vietnam's most prominent contemporary writers....handsomely translated by a team of American and Vietnamese writers and scholars." -- The New York Times Book Review
"These stories range from the serious to the whimsical, from the past to the present, from Vietnam to India to England. Imaginative and lively and often startling, they offer thoughtful readers insight into contemporary Vietnamese literature, culture, and society that are both valuable and pleasurable. Behind the Red Mist is a delightful book from one of the most accomplished writers of Vietnam's post-war generation." --W. D. Ehrhart
