River of Time, Paperback

River of Time Paperback



Between 1970 and 1975 Jon Swain, the English journalist portrayed in David Puttnam's film, The Killing Fields, lived in the lands of the Mekong river.

This is his account of those years, and the way in which the tumultuous events affected his perceptions of life and death as Europe never could.

He also describes the beauty of the Mekong landscape - the villages along its banks, surrounded by mangoes, bananas and coconuts, and the exquisite women, the odours of opium, and the region's other face - that of violence and corruption.
