From Chinese City Heart Vietnm

by , ,

Written in 1955, this diary and sketchbook vividly portrays Vietnamese and Chinese traditions. "A different species of travel is recorded in this charming book by the author of Home Is the Hunter and Kabloona. For this is a portrait in miniature of a life that is soon to vanish. Four miles from Saigon, Cholon is the Chinese pleasure city, the night city with taxi girls and gambling dens and neon signs in Chinese characters". -- Kirkus Reviews "De Poncins was there when the trouble broke out, but his book is only incidentally concerned with politics and war. It is, rather, a portrait of a civilization". -- New Yorker Hide synopsis
