THE MOUNTAINS Nguyen Phan Que that is SINGBy Mai

Halfway through “The Mountains Sing,” the novel that is first English by the Vietnamese poet Nguyen Phan Que Mai, a grandmother explains by herself to your granddaughter she’s caring for in Hanoi within the early 1970s while US bombs rainfall around them. The grandmother has been entrusting to the child the story of her life, rendering in harrowing detail its half-century span of resistance and survival in the face of violent dispossession, colonization, foreign invasion and civil war with the rest of their clan dead, missing or away fighting, and their home reduced to rubble.
