C.B. Skelton Shares Gripping Life Story of a Vietnamese Peasant in a Memoir

The author brings to readers a painful yet beautiful life story of SamSan, a Cambodian refugee of Vietnamese origin.


“A wonderful recount of a wonderful man who faced adversities and overcame them.”

“A Simple Seller of Noodles” by C.B. Skelton recounts the scintillating story of a refugee who faced and overcame huge adversities, beginning with attempted infanticide. Born the son of a hated Vietnamese peasant and a more hated occupying Japanese soldier, SamSan grew up to become a tour-guide for the Royal family’s tourist service and a highly-sought-after interpreter for the Cambodian and US military. Having later reached his pinnacle of success as personal assistant to the US Air Attaché, he was arrested by the Cambodian government on treason charges when the Air Attaché was recalled. SamSan was released from prison by the Khmer Rouge when they captured Phnom Penh, only to be forced immediately into the infamous “Death-March.” Forcefully separated from family, SamSan endured four years of serf labor under the Khmer Rouge rule before he escaped and eventually secured freedom, first in Thailand, and later, in the United States.

Skelton’s biography on SamSan painfully yet wonderfully shares a gripping and moving story of a man who perseveres to overcome the hardships of life. Skelton, through SamSan’s biography, delivers a powerful message as well as valuable lessons to the readers. Truly, the book is worth having and indulging into.
“A Simple Seller of Noodles” will soon be displayed in the upcoming 2018 GIBF happening on November 24 to December 2, 2018.
