The unwanted: a memoir

Book Cover
Average Rating
Little Brown,
Pub. Date:
1st ed.
When Saigon fell to the Viet Cong in April, 1975, Kien Nguyen was there. He watched the last US Army helicopter leave without him, without his brother, his mother or his grandparents. More risk than most in the decimated country, with his odd blond hair and light eyes, he was the most unwanted - an American. This is a memoir by an Amerasian who stayed behind in Vietnam and is now living in America. Told with stark and poetic honesty, it is a story of survival, a story of hope, and a moving, personal record of this tumultuous time in history.
