Praise for Dragon Music

The Vietnam we see here is both lovely and complex, whether we see it through the stunned gaze of the author as a young soldier or through his eyes now, returning to Vietnam as a peculiar kind of tourist, a generation older. Fairhall has a gift for seeing the right thing and for finding a music that will carry it home to us.

— John Balaban
