OK, so I'm out of here,

and won't be back until 4/5/13. I'm heading to Oakland and Berkeley, with brief stops in St. Louis, Reno, Cheyenne and a few other places. There's an outside chance I'll write something from California, but there definitely won't be photos until I get back. If you're in the Bay Area, you can catch me at the events below, plus a couple more poetry readings, to be announced later. Cheers!--Linh


Collapsing Vietnam, Collapsing America

March 7 | 4-6 p.m. | Stephens Hall, 220, Geballe Room, Townsend Center for the Humanities, UC Berkeley

In his first public lecture as an Avenali Resident Fellow, Linh Dinh will discuss his preoccupation with collapse, including how the fall of South Vietnam in 1975 has influenced his thinking and writing, as seen in his novel, Love Like Hate, and how this formative event in his life has colored his view of the world and of history.


Nativating Languages: Challenges and Opportunities of the Non-Native Writer

March 8 | 4-5:30 p.m. | Stephens Hall, 220, Geballe Room, Townsend Center for the Humanities, UC Berkeley

In his second (of three) public lectures, Linh Dinh will read from the writing he has done in Vietnamese, and discuss how it differs from what he writes in English, and why he feels compelled to write in this language, as well as in English.



THE DELUGE: NEW VIETNAMESE POETRY

March 14 | 4-6:00 p.m. | Dwinelle Hall, UC Berkeley

Linh Dinh will discuss his translations of contemporary Vietnamese poetry and literature, and outline his thinking about translation, how he chooses works to translate and how he approaches writers.

About Me

Born in Vietnam in 1963, I came to the US in 1975, and have also lived in Italy and England. I'm the author of two books of stories, Fake House (2000) and Blood and Soap (2004), five of poems, All Around What Empties Out (2003), American Tatts (2005), Borderless Bodies (2006), Jam Alerts (2007) and Some Kind of Cheese Orgy (2009), and a novel, Love Like Hate (2010). I've been anthologized in Best American Poetry 2000, 2004, 2007, Great American Prose Poems from Poe to the Present, Postmodern American Poetry: a Norton Anthology (vol. 2) and Hopeless: Barack Obama and the Politics of Illusion, among other places. I'm also editor of Night, Again: Contemporary Fiction from Vietnam (1996) and The Deluge: New Vietnamese Poetry (2013), and translator of Night, Fish and Charlie Parker, the poetry of Phan Nhien Hao (2006). Blood and Soap was chosen by Village Voice as one of the best books of 2004. My writing has been translated into Italian, Spanish, French, Dutch, German, Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Icelandic and Finnish, and I've been invited to read in London, Cambridge, Brighton, Paris, Berlin, Reykjavik, Toronto and all over the US. I've also published widely in Vietnamese.
