Autumn Cloud
By

Rating
While the Vietnam War is deeply ingrained in a generation of Americans, its history is often one-sided - flavored with blame, corrupt generals and politicians, drugs, and the Viet Cong. What is rarely heard is the compelling story of ordinary people who struggled amidst chaos and upheaval. "Autumn Cloud" is that story. Born at the beginning of World War II, Jackie Bong Wright stands at the center of the modern Indochinese drama. "Autumn Cloud" follows Ms. Wright as she moves from girlhood on a Cambodian rubber plantation to school in Paris, marries a leading political dissident who is later murdered, escapes to America in 1975 with her children, and makes a new life here with a new American husband.
