About the Author

Born in Massachusetts, USA, in September 1943, long-time Australian resident Carl Robinson lived and worked in South Vietnam as a civilian for the entire Vietnam War between 1964 and 1975. Working for The Associated Press (AP), Carl spent two years at the wire services New York headquarters before being assigned to Sydney in mid-1977. Fired barely a year later, he stayed in Australia, determined to overcome his embittering Vietnam experience and start a new life for his wife Kim-Dung and their three children. Since 1995, Carl returns frequently to post-war Vietnam leading tours, lecturing on cruises, organising reunions of former journalists and personal exploration. He is the author of Australia and Mongolia: Nomad Empire of Eternal Blue Sky (Odyssey Publications).


"A real life sequel to Graham Green's 1955 classic, The Quiet American. Carl Robinson steps out of the shadows in this affectionate memoir. A powerful read." --Fox Butterfield, Pulitzer Prize and award-winning journalist
