One of our clients, Loung Ung, has just released her second book, Lucky Child. Her first book, First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers, is an international best-seller. It's a memoir of her life from ages five to nine in Khmer-occupied Cambodia. I haven't yet had time to read Lucky Child, which tells the parallel stories of her life growing up in America and the sister she left behind, but I am sure it is wonderful.
Loung is a real survivor. She complained to me once that after people have read her book they look at her with sad eyes. Don't ever dare pity her.
