Viet Nam News By Du An “Last night, a snake crept onto Lâm’s bed,” someone started. “Oh my god. She felt something slippery, threw off her blanket, then jumped up and down. She was very lucky. If that snake had bitten her, we would have been at her funeral today.” Another said, “Where is that snake now? Its meat will be great for a feast.” “There’s nothing left. It was smashed to powder.” “Who smashed it?” “Who else but Lâm? There isn’t anybody else under her blanket.” “Biên might have come back home at midnight, who knows.” “We know.

Viet Nam News By Phùng Kim Trọng The stormy season came late this year. Not until the 7th lunar month did the news incessantly broadcast forecasts about the first storm of the year heading in from the East Sea. Since the night before, the air had been deadly still and sweltering. Everybody prepared for the wind and rain that was about to lash down any moment.

She was waiting for the moment when her beloved husband would leave her forever. … [Read more...] about Dust

Some beamed as they rushed into the arms of tearful relatives. Others were grim-faced and tense, apprehensive about their new freedom. Lisa Newman-Polk looked on anxiously as she waited for Shaquille Brown’s turn to come. She had been Brown’s lawyer during much of his three years in prison for violating probation in an assault case, and was the only person to visit him in all that time. No relatives, not even his mother, had come.As she watched the reunions, she wondered how he would feel when he stepped through the door. Brown had spent almost his entire adolescence incarcerated, much of it in solitary confinement. He had told her many times he was terrified of the world … [Read more...] about ‘I been in hell all my life’
