This is an auction for THE DEEP GREEN SEA by Robert Olen Butler. review:

“FIVE STARS!!! Robert Olen Butler has explored an "unspeakable" topic in this novel. This is a beautiful love story between Ben, a forty-four year-old Vietnam Veteran, and Thien, a twenty-six year-old Amerasian woman. Though a generation apart, they complement each other with their searches for fulfillment: Ben, for a closure which he supposedly finds, and Thien, for the love of her life. Butler is a master storyteller who excels at giving voice to his two protagonists. The prose is lyrical, sensual, and rawfully honest. The most harrowing aspect of the novel is that it raises more questions in the end than it answers. If that is Butler's intention, then he has succeeded. A romantic at heart, I cried for the torn lovers . . . It's a novel worth losing sleep over . . . ”
