Set in Chile and America--my novella The Lovers

Originally published in Wild River Review on line, The Lovers is the story of a ballet dancer from Chile, who has to leave her native land for political reasons, and emigrate to Philadelphia, in America. Burmese-born author Kyi May Kaung lived many years in West Philadelphia while pursuing her doctorate in Political Science. The Lovers has vivid local color while traversing the uneasy life of political asylees.

In these three riveting stories, based on a dream nightmare and a bus trip to the Eastern Maryland Shore, award-winning writer Kyi May Kaung explores the act or the art of growing old in a foreign country.

My short story--FGM

It happens in Africa and sometimes among exiles out of Africa--but have not heard of it in Burma or other parts of Asia--though there are other kinds of abuse.

Deeply disturbing.

My novel Wolf follows a student leader of 1988, through his formative years and major political events.

https://www.amazon.com/Wolf-Novel-Betrayal-Burma-Myanmar/dp/1479203882 

 

Reading this you will see how 1962-1988 and beyond was bad, but how 2021 is much much worse.

 

Still I think recent events though horrible, prove that Burmese are essentially decent people who just wish to be free.
