In the Shadow of Angkor: Contemporary Writing from Cambodia
Nearly two million people died in Cambodia between 1975 and 1979 as a result of the Khmer Rouge's genocidal regime. Cambodians who were educated, teachers, artists, and authors were among the first to be killed. One generation later, literature is re-emerging from the ashes.
