Nonino Risit d'Aur Prize 2008

Nguyên Huy Thiêp

The son of a Vietnam hurt and devastated by a great liberation war Nguyên Huy Thiêp has managed, as a narrator, to free himself from the rhetoric and the ties still existing though in the great rebuilding of the Country, searching for deep millenarian values in the ashes of his Land.

With the synthetic rhythms of ancient minstrels, he has been able to admirably describe a rustic life immersed in the post-war desolation in all its polyhydric facets.

His short stories are published in Italy by O barra O.
