Perhaps it's due to the multitude of tragedies the country has endured throughout its history – wars, colonialism, famines, and more. It's often said that tragedies provide fertile ground for compelling narratives. In any case, the English-speaking world offers an extensive selection of books about Vietnam, and the exciting part is that many of them are truly exceptional. I mean, they're exceptionally good! Some of the finest writers in the English language have been drawn to explore the intricacies of this captivating Southeast Asian nation.
