Описание: From Monique Truong, the bestselling and award-winning author of The Book of Salt, comes a brilliant, mesmerizing, beautifully written novel about a young woman's search for identity and family, as she uncovers the secrets of her past and of history. Growing up in the small town of Boiling Springs, North Carolina, in the 70's and 80's, Linda believes that she is profoundly different from everyone else, including the members of her own family. "What I know about you, little girl, would break you in two" are the cruel, mysterious last words that Linda's grandmother ever says to her. Now in her thirties, Linda looks back at her past when she navigated her way through life with the help of her great-uncle Harper, who loves her and loves to dance, and her best friend Kelly, with whom Linda exchanges almost daily letters. The truth about my family was that we disappointed one another. When I heard the word "disappoint," I tasted toast, slightly burnt. For as long as she can remember, Linda has experienced a secret sense--she can "taste" words, which have the power to disrupt, dismay, or delight. She falls for names and what they evoke: Canned peaches. Dill. Orange sherbet. Parsnip (to her great regret). But with crushes comes awareness. As with all bodies, Linda's is a mystery to her, in this and in other ways. Even as Linda makes her way north to Yale and New York City, she still does not know the truth about her past. Then, when a personal tragedy compels Linda to return to Boiling Springs, she gets to know a mother she never knew and uncovers a startling story of a life, a family. Revelation is when God tells us the truth. Confession is when we tell it to him. This astonishing novel questions many assumptions--about what it means to be a family and to be a friend, to be foreign and to be familiar, to be connected and to be disconnected--from others and from the past, our bodies, our histories, and ourselves.

Bitter in the Mouth is a brilliant, virtuosic novel about a young woman's search for identity and the true meaning of family.
"What I know about you, little girl, would break you in two" are the prophetic last words that Linda Hammerick's grandmother says to her. Growing up in small-town North Carolina in the 1970s and '80s, Linda already knows that she is profoundly different from everyone else, including the members of her own family. She can "taste" words. In this and in other ways, her body is a mystery to her. Linda's awkward girlhood is nonetheless enlivened and emboldened by her dancing great-uncle Harper, and Kelly, her letter-writing best friend. Linda makes her way north to college and then to New York City, trying her best to leave her past behind her like "a pair of shoes that no longer fit." But when a family tragedy compels her to return home, Linda uncovers the startling secrets of her past. Monique Truong's acclaimed novel questions our assumptions about what it means to be a family and to be a friend, to be foreign and to be familiar, to be connected to and disconnected from our bodies, our histories, ourselves.

Описание: Vietnam has transformed itself, and it is increasingly playing a significant role in global and regional issues. The country is proud of its long-standing cultural traditions and charming landscapes. The history and development of Vietnam has produced a legacy of grand culture, history and artistic heritage yielding strong tourism attractions. Moreover, the strength of Vietnam also lies in its location in relation to neighbouring international gateways. This provides opportunities for the country to develop an intra-regional tourism strategy. Nonetheless, as a tourist destination, Vietnam came late to the American market and remains relatively underdeveloped. During previous decades, the borders of Vietnam were closed to American citizens. However, the re-establishment of diplomatic ties between America and Vietnam has initiated a new era of commercial and cultural relations as well as in tourism between the two nations. The military connection provides Vietnam with some prospect of building tourism. Hundreds of thousands of American soldiers, motivated by nostalgia or curiosity about how things have changed, may be interested in revisiting Vietnam. The country has a plethora of sites from the War that are of interest not just to veterans, but also to all others interested in the Vietnamese culture and history as well as its beautiful landscapes. Conversely, the US market is extremely complex and heterogeneous, and the potential market for Vietnam is a relatively small subset of all travelers. Likewise, despite the strong historical and cultural links between Vietnam and the US, until now there has been little focus on Vietnam as a holiday destination for American travelers and there are only few works apropos of tourism marketing on how to acquire an increasing market share from US inbound tourism to Vietnam. As a result, there is a need to conduct systematic research to fill the gaps that exist in our knowledge of American tourists to Vietnam. This book investigates American tourists perceptions and their level of satisfaction during their holiday in Vietnam, and attempts to fill a gap in literature on American inbound pleasure travel to Vietnam. With a goal of identifying the extent to which Vietnam provides the destination attributes sought by American tourists, this book uses a variety of variables including socio-demographics, travel characteristics and behavioural intentions. In addition to its academic significance, this research done by the authors should provide tourism service providers and destination marketers with improved insights into the behaviour and characteristics of American tourists. The findings from this study should also provide important information that can be used in the future planning and management for the American and Vietnamese tourism industries, allowing wholesale and retail travel agents to improve levels of service and develop appropriate products to meet the expectations of the American travel market.
