War Trash by Ha Jin [in AsianWeek]

War TrashBased on historical accounts, Ha Jin’s third novel opens with the words of an elderly man who records his memoirs for his American-born grandchildren. He
methodically recounts his experiences as a young “volunteer” Chinese army officer in the Korean War who was held as a POW by the Americans, who becomes especially useful for his fluency in English.
