Much Vietnamese Francophone literature expresses the conflictual struggle of writers caught between two cultures: between the traditions and values of their native Vietnam, and the language and system left behind by the French colonial power. A distinguishing feature that recurs in many Vietnamese Francophone novels is the experience of exile and diaspora that came about as a direct result of the political upheaval experienced in Vietnam during the twentieth century, resulting in a humanitarian and economic crisis which led to the emigration of a significant portion of its population.
