About the Book:
The Mountains Sing tells an enveloping, multigenerational tale of the Tr̂àn family, set against the backdrop of the Vịêt Nam War. Tr̂àn Dịêu Lan, who was born in 1920, was forced to flee her family farm with her six children during the Land Reform as the Communist government rose in the North. Years later in HA Ṇôi, her young granddaughter, Hương, comes of age as her parents and uncles head off down the Ĥò Chi Minh Trail to fight in a conflict that tore not just her beloved country, but her family apart. Vivid, gripping, and steeped in the language and traditions of Vịêt Nam, The Mountains Sing brings to life the human costs of this conflict from the point of view of the Vietnamese people themselves, while showing us the true power of kindness and hope.The Mountains Sing is celebrated Vietnamese poet Nguŷẽn Phan Qûé Mai's first novel in English.
