9781880684979: Love After War (Voices from Vietnam)

How does the literature of a society that has endured decades of war reflect the echoes of that violence to bodies and spirits while depicting the ordinary lives of men and women who are searching, as all people do, for meaning, for happiness, for normalcy, for love? Love After War presents the widest range to date of contemporary writers in Vietnam, men and women who have become part of that country's established canon, as well as young and up-coming writers who have come of age in modern Vietnam. Their stories, published in the most widely read literary journals, magazines and newspapers in Vietnam, and many translated here for the first time, reveal the relationships and concerns of everyday life, and the erosion and endurance of life in that country.

Contributors to the anthology include Vu Boa, Nguyen Minh Chau, Ngo Thi Kim Cuc, Nguyen Phan Hach, Ma Van Khang, Nguyen Khai, Le Minh Khue, Nguyen Thi Minh Ngoc, Bao Ninh, Doan Le, Ho Anh Thai, Nguyen Huy Thiep, Nguyen Manh Tuan and others.

About the Author:

Wayne Karlin is the author of six novels. He teaches English at the College of Southern Maryland and is the chief editor of the benchmark anthology, The Other Side of Heaven: Post-War Fiction by Vietnamese and American Writers. His most recent novel is The Wished-for Country.

Ho Anh Thai is the author of 11 works of fiction and is presently an editor for World Affairs Weekly (Tuan Bao Quoc Te). His short story collection, Behind the Red Mist, is available in English.

Review:

"...the largest collection of contemporary Vietnamese fiction writers in English translation...magnificent." -- San Francisco Chronicle


"Opening the pages of Love After War is to discover the rich and fecund earth of Vietnam and Vietnamese literature." -- Harvard Review

"Love after War is a brilliantly conceived collection of stories. Without losing sight of the heritage of war shared between Vietnam and America, these stories move our consciousness toward the deeper universal humanity we also share. Many of the writers of Vietnam are world-class artists, and this is the most comprehensive demonstration of that to be found in the English language. Wayne Karlin and Ho Anh Thai have edited and translated a masterful volume that will endure."

—Robert Olen Butler, author of A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain
