Poetry Asian American Studies JAM ALERTS is the newest title from this important and prolific poet Linh Dinh is one of the most consistently surprising writers around One can find sources amp roots for his writing explain the sources of surrealism through the presence say of the French in Vietnam tho they were driven out a decade before he was born note that he is hardly the only good or succesful Vietnamese American poety let alone the only poet to come from a working class background yet he is not writing about or even toward nor from any one of these contexts so much as he is through them they are lenses filters that condition his perspective on everyday life Imagine what any other poet with this strong a sense of form would have to become in order to write such poetry Linh is writing straightforward poetry but from a perspective shared by almost no one else This kind of exile is far deeper than mere geography Ron Silliman Be sure to check out Linh Dinh s BORDERLESS BODIES and AMERICAN TATTS both currently available from SPD, Roaming the country by bus and train on a budget and without any institutional support Linh Dinh set out to document in words and pictures what life is like for people From Los Angeles Cheyenne Portland and New Orleans to Jackson and Wolf Point Linh walked miles and miles through unfamiliar neighborhoods talking to whoever would talk to him the homeless living in tent cities the peddlers the protestors the public preachers the prostitutes With the uncompromising eye of a Walker Evans or a Dorothea Lange and the indomitable forthright prose of a modern day Nelson Algren or James Agee Dinh documents the appalling and the absurd with warmth and honesty giving voice to America s often forgotten citizens and championing the awesome strength it takes to survive for those on the bottom br br Growing out of a photo and political writing blog Linh has maintained since i Postcards from the End of America i is an unflinching diary of what Linh sees as the accelerating collapse of America Tracking the economic political and social unraveling from the casinos to the abandoned factories and over all the sidewalks in between with a poet s incisive tongue Linh shows us the uncanny power of the people in the face of societal devastation, 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, A dysfunctional family saga that doubles as a portrait of Vietnam in the last half of the th century Protagonists Kim Lan and Hoang Long marry in Saigon during the Vietnam War uniting in a setting that allows Dinh s dark deadpan humour to flourish
