The Other Shore


The Other Shore


Hoa Pham

Winner of the 2014 Seizure Viva La Novella Prize

‘My grandmother had been right to hide her Buddhist rituals for so many years during doi moi, when ancestor worship was forbidden. The spirits were more important than the rules of men.’

When the dead begin speaking to sixteen-year-old Kim Nguyen, her peaceful childhood is over. Suddenly everyone wants to exploit her new talent – her family, the Vietnamese government and even the spirits themselves.

The Other Shore is a delicate meditation on the nature of ghosts, belief and how the future is shaped by the past.
