Fake House the first collection of short stories by poet Linh Dinh explores the weird atrocious fond and ongoing intimacies between Vietnam and the United States br Linked by a complicated past the characters are driven by an intense and angry energy The politics of race and sex anchor Dinh s work as his men and women negotiate their way in a post Vietnam War world Dinh has said of his own work I incorporate a filth or uncleanness to make the picture more healthy not to defile anything br While Fake House delves into the lives of marginal souls in two cultures the characters dignity lies ultimately in how they face the conflict in themselves and the world, No description available, POETRY Linh Dinh s third book of poems Borderless Bodies is a fierce yet playful investigation into the body as metaphor with its various processes as allegories Where bones always nudge Against the fuzziest skin Where inside and outside Are confused and flushed from Borders The body as polity and politics as metaphor and subject at once One only misses one s bellybutton As one is hacked away from it making this perhaps Linh Dinh s most ambitious and accomplished book to date His other collections are AMERICAN TATTS REVISED AND EXPANDED EDITION and ALL AROUND WHAT EMPTIES OUT, Poetry The ever precise and brilliant James Schuyler characterized Vladimir Mayakovsky s poetry as brimming with the intimate yell Frank O Hara got that energy pulsing in his work but was tenderer while Linh Dinh is more preposterous and full of outrage than either Imagine a concoction that mixes Shakespeare s Falstaff and Celine s Bardum frank rollicking humor and hair raising disgust After adding fish sauce a smelly cheese and sexual sweat shake vigorously Out of the bottle rises Linh Dinh God talks to him and he talks about everything including the body parts that Renaissance painters left out No one does it better John Yau
