Goodreads Review: In the Shadow of the Banyan by Vaddey Ratner

Four star review, originally posted here on July 19, 2019.

I don’t really have too much to say about this one besides what can already be inferred from the blurb. Ratner does a good job telling a sad, crazy story about childhood in Cambodia. It is a seriously messed up story, beautifully told with the tenderness and wonder of a child’s perspective.
