With the epic sweep of Min Jin Lee's Pachinko and Yaa Gyasi's Homegoing and the lyrical beauty of Vaddey Ratner's In the Shadow of the Banyan, The Mountains Sing tells an enveloping, multigenerational tale of the Trn family, set against the backdrop of the Vit Nam War.Trn Diu Lan, who was born in 1920, was forced to flee her family farm with her six children during the Land Reform as the Communist government rose in the North. Years later in Hà Ni, her young granddaughter, Hng, comes of age as her parents and uncles head off down the H Chí Minh Trail to fight in a conflict that tore not just her beloved country, but her family apart.Vivid, gripping, and steeped in the language and traditions of Vit Nam, The Mountains Sing brings to life the human costs of this conflict from the point of view of the Vietnamese people themselves, while showing us the true power of kindness and hope. The Mountains Sing is celebrated Vietnamese poet Nguyn Phan Qu Mai's first novel in English.
