"[An] absorbing, stirring novel . . . that, in more than one sense, remedies history." --The New York Times Book Review

"A triumph, a novelistic rendition of one of the most difficult times in Vietnamese history . . . Vast in scope and intimate in its telling . . . Moving and riveting." --VIET THANH NGUYEN, author of The Sympathizer, winner of the Pulitzer Prize

With the epic sweep of Min Jin Lees Pachinko or Yaa Gyasis Homegoing and the lyrical beauty of Vaddey Ratners 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 H Ni, her young granddaughter, Hng, comes of age as her parents and uncles head off down the H Ch Minh Trail to fight in a conflict that tore apart not just her beloved country, but also her family.

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 Mais first novel in English.
