Recorded at the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe, New Mexico on February 27, 2008.
Linh Dinh is the author of Fake House, where we meet American and Vietnamese characters such as a white man considering ordering an Asian mail-order bride; a Vietnamese man wondering why more young women in his village don’t accept money to marry foreigners; and a white woman who believes she’s the ugliest female in the world. His second volume of stories, Blood and Soap, was chosen by the Village Voice as one of the best books of 2004. Dinh has also authored four books of poetry including Jam Alerts, All Around What Empties Out, American Tatts, and Borderless Bodies. He is also the editor of the anthology Night, Again: Contemporary Fiction from Vietnam.
