The Frangipani Hotel


Based on traditional Vietnamese ghost stories told to the author by her Vietnamese grandmother but updated to reflect the contemporary ghost of the Vietnam War, here is a mesmerizing collection of thematically linked stories, united by the first and last story of the collection.

The fact that this is not just any short story collection but rather a collection of traditional Vietnamese ghosts stories albeit with contemporary twists has me intrigued. I’m really looking forward to reading these stories and discussing them with my parents who probably grew up with many of these tales.
