Description
"The Stones Cry Out is startlingly good as literature. It is also animportant addition to a thin historical record.... Her account of the revolutionaryrhetoric, set against the reality of what the revolutionaries were actually doing, is as macabre as any of the descriptions of bodies." -- The Wall StreetJournal "This is a powerful and compelling story of terror, struggle and death sprinkled with moments of tenderness, written by a woman whowrites not of politics but only of what she experienced." -- New York TimesBook Review In 1975, Molyda Szymusiak (her adoptive name), thedaughter of a high Cambodian official, was twelve years old and leading a relativelypeaceful life in Phnom Penh. Suddenly, on April 17, Khmer Rouge radicals seized thecapital and drove all its inhabitants into the countryside. The chaos that followedhas been widely publicized, most notably in the movie The Killing Fields. Murderousbrutality coupled with raging famine caused the death of more than two millionpeople, nearly a third of the population. This powerful memoir documents the horrorCambodians experienced in daily life.
