A Mother's Tale & Other Stories

2 - 4 Weken

A Mother's Tale is a tale of salvaging one's soul from received and inherited war-related trauma. Within the titular beautiful story of a mother's love for her son is the cruelty and senselessness of the Vietnam War, the poignant human connection, and a haunting narrative whose setting and atmosphere appear at times other worldly through their landscape and inhabitants. Captured in the vivid descriptions of Vietnam's country and culture are a host of characters, tortured and maimed and generous and still empathetic despite many obstacles, including a culture wrecked by losses. Somewhere in this chaos readers will find a tender link between the present-day survivors and those already gone. Rich and yet buoyant with a vision-like quality, this collection shares a common theme of love and loneliness, longing and compassion, where beauty is discovered in the moments of brutality, and agony is felt in ecstasy.
