P&P Live! Putsata Reang — Ma and Me – with Charles Yu

2 min read

When Putsata Reang was eleven months old, her family fled war-torn Cambodia, spending twenty-three days on an overcrowded navy vessel before finding sanctuary at an American naval base in the Philippines. Holding what appeared to be a lifeless baby in her arms, Ma resisted the captain’s orders to throw her bundle overboard. Instead, on landing, Ma rushed her baby into the arms of American military nurses and doctors, who saved the child’s life. "I had hope, just a little, you were still alive," Ma would tell Put in an oft-repeated story that became family legend.
