The Third Wife

The Third Wife

In 19th Century Vietnam, 14 year old May arrives by boat to become the third wife of a wealthy land-owner’s son in what is a highly male defined culture.  An evocative and beautifully realised work on the wives’ intimate domestic and sexual lives including May’s sexual awakening. Banned in Vietnam. “..a small, delicate mini-masterpiece…” San Francisco Chronicle
