I've read "The Lover" by her, after seeing the movie, which you may find in a video store. It is a short novel set in Viet Nam during the French colonial time, it is the story of her relationship with an ethnic chinese vietnamese man who ultimately chooses a traditional arranged marriage.
I know nothing of the genre, having only read this author of the ones mentioned in the previous posts.
