"A sort of Vietnamese Edgar Allan Poe for 21st centurylyric qualities infuse Dinh's short fiction." - Susan Balee, Philadelphia Inquirer "The total effect of Blood and Soap is impossible to describeIt owes a certain dept Joege Luis Borges, but uses Borgesuan metafiction and genre-bending to depict a sense of absurdity confusion, and displacement peculiar to being a contemporary world citizen." - Brooklyn Rail
"At once caustic and humorous, harshly critical and nostalgic, Dinh's overview of his homeland is unfailingly honest."--"Booklist"--
Poet and short story writer Dinh's debut novel portrays his native Vietnam from the war through the end of the twentieth century. The tale centers on Kim Lan, who owns the Paris by Night restaurant in Saigon; her husband Hoang Long, an army enlistee who is gone for years at a time; and their daughter Hoa, whose relationship with the leader of the punk band Love like Hate symbolizes the country's growing modernity.
With wry humor,
Linh Dinh is already one of the secret masters of short fiction. Love Like Hate is something like a traditional cross-cultural novel that's been shocked into life by Dinh's uncanny ability to tell us stories we didn't even know we wanted to hear. -- Ed Park, editor of The Believer
In Love Like Hate, Linh Dinh weaves a dysfunctional family saga that doubles as a portrait of Vietnam in the last half century. Protagonists Kim Lan and Hoang Long marry in Saigon during the Vietnam War, uniting in a setting that allows Dinh's dark, deadpan humor to flourish. Describing his mushrooming cast of characters in unsentimental and sometimes absurd ways, Dinh embraces contradictions with the surreal exuberance of Matthew Sharpe and the stylistic élan of Italo Calvino.
