Frank Stewart, Sharon May
University of Hawai'i Press, 2004 - Literary Collections - 220 pages
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.

Given that there isn't much written about contemporary Cambodian writers I will go out on a limb and say that this is the best book on this topic out there. Lots of interesting stories but fiction and non-fiction. Read full review
