Granta 15: The Fall of Saigon

Spring 1985

Witty, bizarre, and verging on the lunatic – who in his right mind would gatecrash an embassy on the back of an invading army’s tank? – James Fenton’s account of the fall of Saigon is an extraordinary record of the collapse of a city at war. Plus: Nadine Gordimer, George Steiner, and Ryszard Kapuściński’s ‘Warsaw Diary’.
