Debris of Debris is not only the first novel written in English by a Vietnamese author living in Vietnam, but also the first novel written about Vietnamese intellectuals who grew up in the South of Vietnam before 1975 and remained there after the war. Vinh Quyen shares a perspective that has not yet been adequately presented in world literature, yet one which carries a universal theme: To survive the war is one thing, but to live happily in the postwar time is another. If Bao Ninh's novel, The Sorrow of War, represents the loss of innocence and anguish experienced by North Vietnam's frontline soldiers, then Debris of Debris is the voice of the young Southern intellectual class, who struggle to take their first steps on the long and difficult journey to heal the scars of their past, and to build a new future for themselves. Through this work, readers will come to better understand the political and emotional turbulence of Vietnam during the post-war era, and gain insight into the lives of a lost generation, that is, until now.
