Between 1970 and 1975 Jon Swain, the English journalist portrayed in David Puttnam's "The Killing Fields", lived in the lands of the Mekong river; this is his account of those days, and the way in which the tumultuous events of those years affected his perceptions of life and death as Europe never could. He also describes the beauty of the Mekong landscape - the villages along its banks surrounded by mangoes, bananas and coconuts, the exquisite men, the odours of opium - and its other face, that of violence and corruption.

Review:

"A remarkable heart-breaking book" (Gavin Young)

"Jon Swain's powerful and moving book goes further than anything else I have read towards explaining the appeal of Indo-China and its tragic conflicts... A brilliant and unsettling examination of the age-old bonds between death, beauty, violence and the imagination, which came together in Vietnam and nowhere else" (J. G. Ballard Sunday Times)

"An absolutely riveting book... Haunting, compulsive and beautifully written, River of Time looks set to become a classic" (Alexander Frater Observer)

"His book is a damning indictment and a triumphant witness. Brief, wrenching, it is surely the freshest and most sensitive account of those times" (Michael Binyon The Times)

"A sombre, magnificent book" (Daily Mail)

Book Description:

‘A romantic, evocative and touching book, the story of a young man’s coming-of-age in the shocking but desperately alluring war zones of Cambodia and Vietnam’ Sunday Telegraph
