In what was Indochina, subsequently Vietnam, one girl's war takes place. Little from the outside world intrudes, there is hardly any news from Europe, merely the immediate presence of the invading Japanese, and the distant hope of rescue, the certainty of suffering.
"Murphy ... offers a vision that is deeply subjective without being deeply interior. Her story unfolds through a dreamlike progression of glinting surfaces, telling gestures and precisely rendered moments in which matter-of-fact horror butts up against absurdist hilarity.... Murphy imbues her world, ultimately, with a lush timelessness, shot through with surprising buoyancy and hope."
