In addition, Mark addresses many underlying, and darker, issues many Nam vets and their families faced after returning home. Through his novel, I believe people will come away with a deeper understanding of some of the emotional and generational issues that the Vietnam War has caused in America. He also sprinkles in some interesting history that has tied Vietnam and America together long before the Vietnam War began.
Finally, I believe that Mark has written an American novel that captures the flow and feel of a traditional Vietnamese poem or book. Anyone who has read the famous Vietnamese poem `The Tale of Kieu' cannot help but see its influence in Mark's book.
