L’OMBRE DOUCE by Hoai Huong Nguyen : a debut to be published in January, already sold in Italy (Ugo Guanda)

It is Hanoï in 1954 and the war in Indochina is raging. Mai, a young Annamese girl, falls in love with an exiled French soldier from Brittany. This is a striking first novel which revisits the greatest myths of Eastern and Western cultures. A true and deeply human story, void of caricature.

Only a few weeks after submitting the proofs, we have received a Pre-empt offer from Italy.
