"Can on co em. Co that gan da va su can dam cua co da cuu sinh mang chung toi."I entered that into Google Translate, and this is the result:
"Can shrink on you. Liver is real leather and courage. You saved my life."All was not lost, however. In a forum about learning Vietnamese, someone had asked about the lines in the book. A Vietnamese-speaker said that this is what they meant:
"Thank you sister. You're very brave and your bravery has saved our lives."Which makes a lot more sense than does Google's result.
* As a pissant-level writer, I suppose that I should be buying new books so that the authors get paid.
