Finalist for the 2000 Governor General’s Award

By the author of the award-winning memoir The Concubine’s Children

On June 8, 1972, a nine-year-old girl, severely burned by napalm, ran from a misplaced air strike over her village in South Vietnam and into the eye of history. Her photograph—one of the most unforgettable images of the war and of the twentieth century—was seen around the world. The Girl in the Picture is at once a riveting personal story about Kim Phuc, a victim of war and later, under the Communist regime, a tool of propaganda, and a groundbreaking social history that offers a rare view of everyday life in Vietnam both during and after the war.

Denise Chong is an award-winning and internationally published author. The Girl in the Picture was a finalist for the Governor General’s Literary Award, as was her memoir, The Concubine’s Children. She lives in Ottawa with her husband and two children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fascinating This book captivated me and my knowledge about the Vietnam war has increased a bit more. It is beautifully written; both inspiring and tragic at the same time.
