Auteurs Vietnamiens: Duong Thu Huong

Née à Hanoi en 1947, Duong Thu Huong bénéficie encore de la culture française laissée derrière par les ex-"colons". Elle est l'une des premières romancières contemporaines, connue pas seulement pour son talent littéraire, mais aussi pour son engagement en faveur de la démocratie et de la liberté dans un Vietnam de l'après-guerre. Parmi les distinctions littéraires reçonnues, son premier roman "Terre des oublis" a reçu le grand prix des lectrices de Elle 2007. Son autre chef-d'oeuvre, "Les paradis aveugles" (1988) a aussi gagné le Prix Gabrielle d'Estrées.
