Facing the reality of what happened in Southeast Asia-and bringing others together to reconcile with it-has become the life work of novelist Maxine Hong Kingston, who teaches Buddhism and creative writing to Vietnam veterans. "In the workshops, [they] break out of the solipsism, the narcissism, the isolation," says Professor Kingston, who was awarded the National Humanities Medal by President Clinton. In this program, Professor Kingston explores the causes and effects of alienation from one's country in a journey to France in 1996 to meet with Thich Nhat Hahn, who was a strong presence at the Paris talks that later produced the peace accords ending the Vietnam War.
