THE SONG OF KIỀU
by Nguyễn Du
published by Penguin

*

Ever since it exploded into Vietnam's cultural life two centuries ago, The Song of Kiều has been one of that nation's most beloved and defining central myths. It recounts the tragic fate of the beautiful singer and poet Kiều, who agrees to marry to save her family from debt but is tricked into working in a brothel. Over the course of a swift-moving story involving kidnap, war, jealous wives and rebel heroes, she will become a queen, wife, nun, slave, victim and avenger, surviving through the strength of her words and her wits alone.
