Daughter of the Killing Fields: Asrei's Story

by Theary C. Seng
£15.99   hardback  Fusion Press (2005)

Daughter of the Killing Fields: Asrei Asrei was a toddler when the Khmer Rouge killed her father. In prison shortly after, she fell asleep in her mother's arms and woke to find her gone for ever. Daughter of the Killing Fields tells how Asrei (Theary Seng) spent her early years passed from one set of relatives to another, amidst a backdrop of soldiers, land-mines, inadequate refugee camps and unrelenting death. Confronted by a sea of human suffering from the age of three, she soon learnt that 'life is but a breath'.
This is the powerfully haunting story of how Asrei, her brothers, aunts and uncles managed to survive, eventually emigrating to the West. It begins and ends 21 years later, as Asrei confronts the man she holds 'accountable for the death of my parents, and for the blood of 1.7 million others.'

"Theary Seng's story represents the harsh truth of the Cambodian people's struggle and triumphs... a testimony to the strength of the human spirit."
(Dith Pran, whose life was portrayed in 'The Killing Fields')
