Vietnamese poet Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai's family saga The Mountains Sing is her first novel in English, but she's written and translated over 18 books in her native language, garnering accolades from the Hà Nội Writers Association, Capital, and elsewhere. "Que Mai contains her saga with a poet’s discipline, crafting spare and unsparing sentences, and uplifts it with a poet’s antenna for beauty in the most desolate circumstances," writes Gaiutra Bahadur for the New York Times.
