Marcelino Truong is an illustrator, painter, and author. Born the son of a Vietnamese diplomat in 1957 in the Philippines, he and his family moved to America (where his father worked for the embassy) and then to Vietnam at the outset of the war. He attended the French Lycee in London, then moved to Paris where he earned degrees in law at the Paris Institute of Political Studies, and English literature at the Sorbonne. His first book, Such a Lovely Little War: Saigon 1961-63, received acclaim in the New York Times, Mother Jones, and Kirkus; the sequel, Saigon Calling: London 1963-75, will be published in the fall of 2017.
