A Shattered Youth

The forthcoming English language edition of A Shattered Youth
My penchant for new books about Cambodia was well and truly whetted this week when one of my spies told me about a forthcoming paperback memoir, due out in September, by a member of the Cambodian Supreme Court since 2006, Sathavy Kim. It's called A Shattered Youth: Surviving the Khmer Rouge and tells the story of her life, in 240 pages, under the assumed name of Borgn Tha, throughout and after the Khmer Rouge takeover of Phnom Penh, where she was studying for her law degree at the time. The book was published in the French language a couple of years ago, as she had completed her law studies in France before returning to Cambodia. It will be published by Maverick House in Britain, Ireland, Asia and Australia.
The French edition, published in 2008
