A former television critic and teacher, now a freelance journalist, tells of the year she spent trying to help young Amerasians in Vietnam. After Kelly visited Vietnam in 1988, she decided to return to teach English and facts about the United States to the children abandoned by their American fathers and shunned by the Vietnamese. She held classes in the American Transit Center and then, when that privilege was denied her, in parks, restaurants, bars, and a student's home. She describes her experiences, which ranged from pathetic to humorous, and portrays life in contemporary Saigon. This touching, perceptive eyewitness account will be of interest to general and subject collections.-- Shirley L. Hopkinson, SLIS, San Jose State Univ., Cal.
