Reviews

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
