Synopsis: Set in Saigon and in America, this debut novel by Pulitzer Prize winner, The Alleys of Eden is the tragic story of a man and a woman of widely diverging cultures who are brought together by the turmoil of war, only to drift apart in the aftermath of the crisis. Clifford Wilkes — the last U.S. Army deserter left in Saigon — has lived for the past five years in a small hotel room with his Vietnamese lover, Lanh. But when they are forced to flee the city on the last choppers to leave the American embassy, their private world of trust, understanding, and intimacy becomes yet another casualty of war.
