Reading Southeast Asia
Here’s a list of books I’ve read/am reading while I’m in Hanoi and traveling around Vietnam and other parts of Southeast Asia. They will probably mostly focus on Vietnam, since I’m here, and on Cambodia, Laos and the Hmong because of personal and academic interests. If you have book suggestions for me, don’t be afraid to leave them in the comments with the title, the author and a sentence or two about why you liked the book.
The Things They Carried–Tim O’Brien (novel)
The Book of Salt–Monique Truong (novel)
Laos & the Hmong
The Latehomecomer: A Hmong Family Memoir–Kao Kalia Yang
Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven–Susan Jane Gilman (China)
River Town: Two Years on the Yangtze–Peter Hesser (China)
