Published on: 2015
Publisher: Alma Littera

After hearing an offer to live a year  in Saigon, journalist Vita Vilimaitė Lefebvre Delattre didn not waver: she always wanted to return to Asia, because she felt that there she will find her fate. But is the Saigon of 2006 really the place of her dream?

Just like all other people who wrote about their memories, adventures and events in Asia – the author reviels a rather dualistic world. To us, westerners, hearing the word Asia, whether we like it or not, brings thoughts of stereotypes like: Taj Mahal, The Great Wall of China, odd dishes and so on. But these are the thoughts of an unexperienced person. There is a completely diffent, deeper world underneath our ameteuristic glance. That is exactly what is emphasized in “Šešeri metai Saigone“ (Six years in Saigon). While drawing a picture of uknown Vietnam to a westerner, the author binds every drawn line with her own experienced events, feelings, thoughts. In this book one will find how stereotypes are “broken“ and confirmed. However, the most fascinating aspect of this book is the author‘s ability to put the reader of this book into her place. To make one feel enstranged in a different culture. To feel lonely and showered in often not required attention because of being  a “white“ person with light eyes. More
