French term or phrase: C’est le Viet-nâm… et ce n’est pas le Viet-nâm
Hello,

I don't know how I can make this sound natural in English:

"Elles sont deux écrivaines nées dans le même pays. C’est le Viet-nâm... et ce n’est pas le Viet-nâm. C’est le Pays sans nom. À partir de ce fil, Anna Moï déambule avec Marguerite Duras dans des lieux qui leur sont mythes communs – le passage Éden, le bac, les bungalows, les voitures de légende, le Mékong – revisités de nos jours. "

Here is the link for more context:

Your ideas and suggestions are most welcome!
Thank you.
