THE MIRACULOUS MR. HAI
The miraculous Mr. Hai is a one-armed, motorcycle-riding, durian-growing musician of Vietnam. After Mr. Hai lost his arm when he was ten years old, he learned how to play guitar. He plays a dying genre of music known as, Tai Tu, which sounds like something Hank Williams would have played on an opium bender in the South Pacific. Read about how Mr. Hai has carved out a nice life for himself in the Mekong Delta on Lucky Peach.
