HCM CITY (VNS) — The Kim Dong Publishing House has republished a collection of 11 books for children written by late author Doan Gioi, one of the country's most talented contemporary writers.
The collection includes Dat Rung Phuong Nam (The Southern Woodland), a novel which highlights the culture and lifestyle of southern people.
The book has been translated and published in Russia, Cuba, China and Germany. It was also made into an 11-part TV series produced by the HCM City Television in 1997.
Born in 1925 in Tien Giang Province, Gioi worked for several radios, newspapers and publishers. He wrote many short stories, novels and poems.
For his contributions, the HCM City People's Committee decided to name a street in Tan Phu District after his name after his death in 1989. — VNS
