Title Profile & Character Information

The Lotus Eaters

Annotation
As Saigon falls, U.S. photojournalist Helen Adams prepares to leave with her Vietnamese lover, Linh, whose conflicted feelings mirror the relationship between their two countries. A first novel that's reputedly wonderful; I'm eager to see.
