Select Books is pleased to invite you to a book-reading and meet-the-author event with Audrey Chin, author of As the Heart Bones Break, on Saturday, 14 December 2013, at 2:00pm.
About As the Heart Bones Break
In Thong Tran’s Vietnam, everyone is at war and no one is who they seem. But even a conflicted heart needs a home. Yearning for a true father and a cause to give himself to, Thong chooses independence, liberty and happiness – his tutor and the Viet Cong. It is a choice with karmic consequences he will spend the next half century criss-crossing the Pacific to outrun.
Can Thong set down the bones rankling in his heart? And at what cost?
