Saigon fell to the Viet Cong on April 30, 1975. Kien Nguyen was there. He watched the last U.S. Army helicopter leave without him, without his brother, without his mother, without his grandparents. Left to a nightmarish existence in a violated and decimated country, Kien was more at risk than most because of his odd blond hair and his light eyes - because he was Amerasian. He was the most 'unwanted'.

THE UNWANTED is the only memoir by an Amerasian who stayed behind in Vietnam and who is now living in America. Told with stark and poetic brilliance, this is a story of survival, a story of hope - a moving and personal record of a tumultuous and important piece of history.
