TRAN VAN DINH
No Passenger on the River
NY, Vantage Press, (1965). A "vanity press" novel of the war by this Vietnamese writer, about a highly trained and educated South Vietnamese colonel who witnesses corruption and betrayals of the values he's fighting for. An important novel, both for its early date -- and the criticisms of the conduct of the war that it reflects at that time -- and for its Vietnamese perspective. Signed by the author in 1968. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. [#034510] SOLD
