In his collection of stories »The General Retires,« which was first published over two decades ago, Nguyen Huy Thiep shows the life of ordinary people in modern-day Vietnam. As the dust settled after war and revolution the old moral standards clashed with the materialistic pragmatism of the younger generation. Thiep captures the emotional dimensions of life in modern Vietnam as no one else can.
