placing the accents by Truong Tran

Excerpts | Ordering Info

Narration, physically close as a noose. Clarified American speech slashed by Vietnamese shadow vernacular. Water supply, sparse and diminishing. Teeth marks: word hunger: eating, bitter and fabulous. Truong Tran's first book is a voluptuary of the difficult real. To be entered, and entered. Gratefully.
