I'll be in NYC for four events next week, with three of them related to Monkey Business

Monkey Business is a unique, cutting-edge annual literary journal which showcases newly-translated Japanese as well as contributions from contemporary American and British writers. It was founded in 2008 by Motoyuki Shibata, one of Japan’s most highly regarded men of letters. (Shibata translated my Blood and Soap into Japanese, by the way. He's a great, down to earth guy. I met Shibata and his wife for the first time last October in Singapore.)

Dear Linh, I wouldn't miss these events if I weren't in central Ohio. On your next pass through New York, I expect to be back in town, and won't fail (i.e. will try not to fail) to take in your appearances. In the meantime, wishing you smooth travels and receptive hearers = David L

Linh Dinh said...

Thanks a lot, David! Four events in a week are a bit much, but I'm looking forward to spending some time in NYC. My tight schedule will probably preclude me running over to Jersey City. The owner of the Golden Cicada is a very interesting man, and I'd love to profile him someday.


Linh Dinh said...

P.S. And what the hell are you doing in central Ohio? Are you teaching out there?


About Me

Born in Vietnam in 1963, I came to the US in 1975, and have also lived in Italy, England and Germany. 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 Flash Fiction International: Very Short Stories From Around the World, etc. I'm also editor of Night, Again: Contemporary Fiction from Vietnam (1996) and The Deluge: New Vietnamese Poetry (2013). 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, Leipzig, Halle, Reykjavik, Toronto, Singapore and all over the US. I've also published widely in Vietnamese.
