After successfully launching “Journeys into Darkness and Light” a collection of short stories in April 2015, André Nguyễn Văn Châu penned three longer fiction works included within “Night and Day”.
These multi-faceted stories follow the characters into dark despair so they can overcome their ordeals in order to start believing again. The point of departure might be sin, crime, or a moment of weakness, but the end-game is redemption, a violent confrontation with fate, and enlightenment.
Always depicting the men and women of his stories with tenderness and respect Van Chau illustrates their pain, defeat, triumph, and joy as if these emotions were his own. When the final confrontation leads to the possibility of redemption or an invitation to holiness, you know you will walk away from these stories with a new perspective.
Emotions run high when Starlit challenges Hamilton to a race. Hamilton’s certain he can’t lose and Starlit’s sure she’ll win. The characters plan a course that takes the trolls through Hamilton’s world. It’s an action-packed race. Yet that’s when the story takes an unexpected turn.
In every good race there will be a winner and a loser. This is an important life-lesson on how to be happy even when you’re sad.More info →

Born in Vietnam in 1935, André Nguyễn Văn Châu grew up in the midst of wars; enduring intense emotions ranging between hopes and disappointment to joys and sorrows. Many of the stories he penned in 'Journeys into Darkness and Light' set tragic characters against terrible odds. Most of them triumphed over their despair, or accepted their demise with superhuman courage. Later in his life the author lived and worked in scores of countries where men and women from different parts of the world, especially in Africa, shared the same joys and sorrows with their Vietnamese contemporaries. He spoke of them and shared their stories with the same tenderness, complicity, and emotional intensity. The brevity of these stories considerably enhances the general theme. It highlights the loneliness, alienation, terror in the face of the passing of time and death, in the characters, and also their surging moments of happiness and hope.More info →
