'An absorbing saga, an epic novel... Anthony Grey is not just a man of steely courage as his survival of two years as a hostage in Peking demonstrated; he is one of that rare species - a born storyteller' The Daily Mail. This books makes a claim as the Vietnam equivalent to Norman Mailer's The Naked and the Dead written about the second World War.' Nashville Banner. The ringing irony of Saigon is that a major work of fiction was required to adequately explain the fundamental tragedy of the United States involvement in Vietnam... This is a novel of terrible importance... Like James Michener and James Clavell, Mr Grey is a master storyteller. Unlike them however, he has something pertinent to say and does so in distinguished fashion.' Kansas City Star. 'One of the most remarkable love stories of our time has been delivered with a firm literate hand by Anthony Grey, who with this novel establishes himself as one of the finest storytellers plying his trade today.' West Coast Review of Books, California.Reseña del editor:
Vietnam's heady tropical landscape captivates fifteen-year-old Joseph Sherman on a colonial hunting expedition to Saigon with his family in 1925. He is lured back again and again by his enduring fascination for that beautiful country and for the beguiling mandarin's daughter Lan who he could never forget. Through five haunting decades, Joseph's life becomes deeply enmeshed with Vietnam's war-torn fate until he attempts to salvage something of lasting value as US helicopters flee the falling city of Saigon...
