about this book

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.

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.”

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.
