“Beauty Rising” on NOISETRADE

I’ve been familiar with noisetrade for a number of years. It started as a site for musicians to create buzz about their music by offering free downloads. It expanded into books in 2014, and I’m happy to be part of what they are doing. I’m hoping for a bunch more new readers to jump on board. Check out Noisetrade’s music, books, and especially “Beauty Rising.”

What’s it about? Many have described it as a late-coming-of-age story and that’s certainly true. Here’s some facts about it:

Date First Published: December 2012

Main Characters: Martin Kinny (30ish, still live at home going nowhere type – also overweight, not remarkably attractive); My Phuong (a beautiful, young, troubled Vietnamese woman)

Setting: Contemporary: Thai Nguyen & Hanoi Vietnam; Lyndora, Pennsylvania;

Narration: 1st person from two points of view

Part I: Section narrated by Martin: As his dying, abusive father (a Vietnam vet) asks Martin to take his ashes back to Nam, Martin tries to accomplish it, but ends up flubbing everything, including getting his wallet stolen, which makes him completely at the mercy of Vietnamese society to get back home

Part II: Section narrated by My Phuong: She chronicles how she stole Martin’s wallet, and how that seemingly benign event which she did many times before, ends up throwing her headlong into a series of events that should could have never predicted – including running for her very life.

Part III: Section narrated by Martin: In strange, unexpected ways, the two stories of Martin and My Phuong come together with a lot of uncertainty brewing under the surface.

Other Important Characters:

Martin’s Mother: weary and worn after a lifetime of living with her abusive husband; she resents all things Vietnam.

The Vietnamese Politician: He lures My Phuong into a web of deceit, where she becomes his trapped mistress.

This is an emotional novel which packs a wallop – especially at the end. Anyone who enjoys stories of love, deceit, culture, adventure, travel, or growing-up will find something enjoyable in “Beauty Rising”
