To Destroy You Is No Loss The Odyssey of a Cambodian Family

characters To Destroy You Is No Loss The Odyssey of a Cambodian Family 107 This amazing book was written by California author Joan Criddle who has done a remarkable job in simulating the words of a Cambodian American Silicon Valley computer programmer Teeda Butt Mam the daughter of a Lon Nol minor government official When Phnom Pehn fell Teeda was fifteen years old and attending an English school in the city As a pampered child of a well to do urban family she was not prepared to endure the hardships and the horrors which she would soon be forced to experienceUpon the defeat of the Lon Nol Khmer Republic Pol Pot founded Democratic Kampuchea and launched the economic plan of his French trained associate Khieu Samphan who held that land was the source of all wealth Khieu spurn This was a thoroughly fascinating book and by far the best personal account of survival during the Pol Pot regime that I have read Of the other 12 first person stories that I ve finished in the past year only this book really attempted to put the survivor s experience into historical and cultural context explaining some of the history and background to the Khmer Rouge nightmare and helping the reader understand how Khmer culture devolved during the communist nightmare her portrayal of how Khmer marriage customs changed is particularly interesting Teeda s experiences are not as harsh as Molyda Szymusiak s The Stones Cry Out A Cambodian Childhood 1975 1980 or Laurence Pic s Beyond the Horizon Five Years With the Khmer Rouge but she managed to avoid death and severe privation through keen observation of what the Khmer Rouge considered worthy and what they punished Perhaps the worst experience Teeda describes comes after her escape to the Thai border when she and her family are pushed into a minefield by Thai soldiers at the infamous Preah Vihear forced repatriation the clearest and most detailed account of this incident that I ve encountered The author Joan Criddle must have done significant amounts of research in writing this book at a time when relatively little information on the Khmer Rouge was in print but it is all presented in a literate and very readable style in the context of Teeda s tale I d rate this book above many other Khmer Rouge survival stories although Chanrithy Him s When Broken Glass Floats Growing Up Under the Khmer Rouge is also very worthwhile It certainly eclipses badly edited works such as Escape from the Killing Fields One Girl Who Survived the Cambodian Holocaust The Price We Paid A Life Experience in the Khmer Rouge Regime and The Death and Life of Dith Pran The Toybag Guide To Canes And Caning in simulating the words of a Cambodian American Silicon Valley computer programmer Teeda Butt Mam the daughter of a Lon Nol minor government
