The Boat by Nam Le
A child assassin in Colombia; an ageing New York artist desperate to be reconciled with his daughter; a boy's coming of age in a rough Victorian fishing town; a Japanese schoolchild moments before the bomb is dropped on Hiroshima − all sandwiched between two semi-autobiographical tales. The Boat, by Vietnamese-born Australian Nam Le, has garnered outstanding reviews all over the world. It's a collection of astonishing diversity and achievement by one of our most assured and promising new writers.
