AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The tale of two families: One on a near future Vietnam invaded by the Chinese in which Phuong's husband tries a desperate move to get the two of them and their daughter out of the country and the other some years later, in Australia, where George Duulngari, a former fighter who has quit the ring tries to support his family in a highly stratified society of super-rich and poor. These two stories come together at the end. Nice sense of setting in this very grim tale.'
