The Building
(Chung cu)

by VIET Linh


Spring 1975, the liberation of Saigon. The Victory hotel, a handsome nine-storey building in the capital centre and a symbol of the splendour of the olden days, is claimed by the revolutionaries to accommodate the resistance’s executives. Tham, whose fate is linked to the hotel’s, welcomes the newcomers with apprehension, yet he is appointed as the building’s official caretaker. Tham, affectionately nicknamed “Grandpa”, is treated as an equal by the heroes of the struggle. For more than twenty years, he will be a privileged witness to the inhabitants’ daily life and the keeper of their secrets. JB
