ANOTHER QUIET AMERICAN
TAKE A TRIP TO LAOS!
Brett takes you through the corridors of power and into the living rooms of Laos, where he lived and worked after college.
In ANOTHER QUIET AMERICAN, you'll meet folks like Brett's boss, a wealthy general who strikes fear into the heart of all who hear his name; an aging prince pining for the French colonial past; an American pilot who left home to fight and never returned; and a new generation of Lao who have more money than they can use, but still search for happiness.
It's a glimpse of one of the world's few remaining communist nations—and a way of life that is fast slipping away.
