Joseph Babcock's New Book Project "Other Moons" Published

Other Moons - Vietnamese Short Stories of the American War and Its Aftermath, Translated and edited by Quan Manh Ha and Joseph Babcock

Professor Joseph Babcock, lecturer (English), has a book project, Other Moons, published August 2020 with Columbia University Press. It's an anthology of short fiction about the war in Vietnam by Vietnamese writers; he served as translator and editor of the anthology with his friend Quan Manh Ha, who teaches at the University of Montana.

This is the first time that any of these stories have appeared in English; it's an opportunity for English-speaking readers to experience how Vietnamese writers (many of them veterans of the war themselves) continue to think about and remember the conflict.
