Book Launch of Lady of the Realm at Readings Bookshop, Carlton

Lady of the Realm will be launched by Alice Pung, award-winning writer, journalist and essayist.

 

One day there will be peace in Vietnam. But not before more war.

Touched by the Lady of the Realm, Liên dreams of bones and bodies under the sea. The prescient warnings from the Lady weigh heavily on Liên, who is burdened by her inability to save everyone. But she knows that the Lady speaks most to those who listen.

Set against the background of the Vietnam/American war we follow Liên’s path across five decades that are punctuated by endless war and suffering.

Yet even in the most desperate of times, Liên refuses to be ruled by fear and anger and persists in her hope for a peaceful future.

But will hope be enough?
