Reading in Chicago

Linh Dinh

Fiction writer, poet and translator Linh Dinh to read at Gage on Feb. 17

Linh Dinh, author of the award-winning novel Love Like Hate, will read from his work as part of this spring’s Roosevelt University Reading Series at 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 17 in Roosevelt’s Gage Gallery, 18 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago.

Dinh was born in Saigon, Vietnam in 1963, came to the U.S. in 1975, and has also lived in Italy (as a guest of the International Parliament of Writers) and England (as a David T.K. Wong Fellow at the University of East Anglia).

He also is the author of two collections of stories, Fake House and Blood and Soap; and five books of poems, including All Around What Empties Out  and Borderless Bodies. His work has been anthologized in several editions of Best American Poetry and Great American Prose Poems from Poe to the Present, among other places. He edited the anthologies Night, Again: Contemporary Fiction from Vietnam and Three Vietnamese Poets, and translated Night, Fish and Charlie Parker, the poetry of Phan Nhien Hao. He has also published widely in Vietnamese. He lives in Philadelphia.

Ed Park, editor of the Believer, calls Dinh “one of the secret masters of short fiction,” and Matthew Sharpe, author of Jamestown, says that “Linh Dinh is one of the great original voices in American literature of the 21st century." Dinh himself says of his work, “I’m attempting to show how the individual is formed and deformed by the forces of history.”

Free and open to the public, the reading is presented by the MFA in Creative Writing Program, the University’s literary magazine, Oyez Review, and the Department of Literature and Languages at Roosevelt University. For more information, contact or 312-341-2417.

Will try to make it to your reading. Will be driving back to Chicago that day and unsure of my itinerary. Regardless, congrats and good luck.

Yo Justin,

Make sure you say hello if you do come!

I was on track to make it to Roosevelt in time - then the blizzard hit. Needless to say, traveling to/in Chicago was a hot mess. Next time!
