by Pham Duy Khiêm
Translated from French by Harry Aveling
The present volume is a beautiful collection of folktales from Vietnam.
The stories tell of love, happiness and disappointment; war, victory and
defeat; of wise and foolish ministers; enchanting fairies and poor scholars. The author, Pham Duy Khiem, was the first Vietnamese to graduate from a French university; he writes in a lyrical, deeply moving manner, and makes the rich cultural heritage of his country immediately accessible to all people.
