Featured Reviews

Catinat Boulevard is one of the most touching novels I have ever read. Told from a child's perspective, it recreates a world lost to history, a world where love, adventure and rebellion reigned free despite the ravages of destruction. Among the many Vietnamese writers in North America today, Caroline stands out for her daring humour, her challenges to social conventions and her evocative prose.
