VO PHIEN'S LETTERS In this book (384 pages), I write about Vo Phien's letters. In Western countries, collections of letters written by famous writers are fairly common. This has a long tradition which can be traced back more than two thousand years to ancient Greek literature. In Vietnam the situation is different: This is the first collection of letters written by a Vietnamese author which has been published. Vo Phien's letters are not only beautifully written but also reveal his colorful life and his deep thoughts on literature and art. It is useful for critics and literary historians who want to study modern Vietnamese literature, particularly, literature in exile.
