March 26, 2017 (FPRC) -- Framingham, Mass. — Boston author Dick Pirozzolo will discuss his “Escape from Saigon - a Novel" and sign copies at Barnes & Noble, Shoppers World, Framingham at 7 PM, Thursday, March 30.
“Escape from Saigon - a Novel” tells the story of the heartbreaking final thirty-days of the Vietnam War through the lives of people—both ordinary and powerful— who are trapped in Saigon — a beloved city once known as the Paris of the Orient.
By April of 1975, the enemy had encircled the city and was poised to strangle off any chance of escape. The fall of Saigon loomed. As the days of April 1975 tick by pressure and panic among the characters in the story mount.
Among them are NBS-TV’s first Vietnamese-American correspondent and the cynical Sam Esposito of The Washington Legend whose coverage infuriated Richard Nixon; an American businessman who “adopts” 300 of his employees in a quest to smuggle them out, an American soldier searching for his wife’s relatives, and a French expatriate barkeep hanging on the last vestiges of the old colonial life. The remaining Americans include the disillusioned Ambassador Graham Martin, CIA operatives and double agents.
Both Dick Pirozzolo, and his coauthor Michael Morris are Vietnam Veterans. Pirozzolo will discuss the inspiration for the novel, the people who fought, and the journalists who devoted their youth to covering what was then America’s longest war.

The novel has won praise from:
Winston Groom, author of ”Forrest Gump” who wrote,“Escape from Saigon brings to life the lives of the men and women trapped in the capital city,” and Casey Sherman, New York Times Bestselling Author of ”The Finest Hours,” and ”Boston Strong” who wrote,“Escape from Saigon is a sweeping saga n the grand tradition of Michener and Clavell.”
PBS-TV’s Llewellyn King, put it this way: “Escape from Saigon” has the same ring of authenticity as Graham Greene’s The Quiet American. Its portrait of a city in extremis is chilling and completely engrossing. It will take many back and some forward—forward to new foreign entanglements.”
