Description:

""Night, Again" is fresh, invigorating work. Taken all together, these brief prose pieces have the scope of a fine novel."-"The Philadelphia Inquirer" "Not only are these stories, almost without exception, very strong on purely literary grounds, but they also provide an invaluable firsthand documentation of a society undergoing rapid change."-"The Times Literary Supplement" "Unsentimental and sensual, the stories in "Night, Again" are imbued with sly wit and haunting music. The range of style and subject matter is impressive. Out of the ruins of war, these living writers demonstrate their profound resilience, poetic vision, and luminous artistry."-Jessica Hagedorn "Carefully chosen stories from writers whose styles and subject matter exhibit real range. . . . [T]hese pieces suggest a nuanced and decidedly polyvalent view of Vietnam."-"A. Magazine" "A forceful and stunning compendium by a talented editor, "Night, Again" is unquestionably one of the finest literary entries in years from the new Asia and is essential for modern Asia-Pacific collections."-"Choice" Praised for its documentary importance and literary brilliance when it was first published in 1996 and now updated with two new stories, "Night, Again" offers us the unique opportunity to see the Vietnamese through their own eyes and surprises us with its playfully ironic portraits. Awarded a Pew Fellowship in 1993 and hosted in Certaldo, Italy, as a guest of the InternationalParliament of Writers and of Cities of Asylum, Linh Dinh is an accomplished author, poet, and translator. He has written two collections of stories, "Fake House" and "Blood and Soap", and two books of poems, "All Around What Empties Out" and "American Tatts". His work has been anthologized in "The Best American Poetry 2000", "The Best American Poetry 2004", and "Great American Prose Poems: From Poe to the Present".
