Discover Your Mother

March 16, 2017

All the way up to the launch of my debut novel Mothers and Other Strangers, we are discovering our mothers, and asking ourselves who they were, before they were ours. Sometimes the answer is complicated, as author and journalist Danielle Flood reveals in her terrific memoir, The Unquiet Daughter. Here she shares her mother with us. 

Before I was born my French and Vietnamese mother was mistress to my father in Saigon. Here she is with her brother, Alban Jullien, in the month in 1950 when she began living with my father. Later, scholars learned Graham Greene borrowed her as a character in THE QUIET AMERICAN and I became the living sequel to that novel. I am THE UNQUIET DAUGHTER; A MEMOIR OF BETRAYAL AND LOVE. — Danielle Flood. Photo from the collection of Danielle Flood.
