Blood and Soap is a breakthrough collection of modern-day fables from a wildly inventive American writer whose fiction has been called &quote;terse and edgy&quote; (Booklist) and &quote;vividly imagined&quote; (Kirkus Reviews). Dinh's gift is for constructing, in the manner of Italo Calvino, simple narratives that quickly frame larger questions; with a poet's timing, the author builds his stories to the one or few climactic sentences that brand them with unforgettable meaning. In one tale, a Vietnamese boy's self-guided, haphazard study of English gives way to a meditation on the universality of language: &quote;Everything seems chaotic at first, but nothing is chaotic. One can read anything: ants crawling on the ground; pimples on a face; trees in a forest.&quote; In another story, a man opens a newspaper and sees the photograph of a man he may have murdered, which he impulsively clips, only to feel that in doing so he unwittingly has sealed his crime: &quote;As soon as I finished, I realized what I had done: by cutting my father's likeness out of the newspaper, I had removed him from the world.&quote; The collection crescendoes in displays of raw creative power, as in &quote;Eight Plots,&quote; a rapid-fire of three- and four-sentence summaries, and the brilliant, impressionistic &quote;!&quote;Blood and Soap is an arresting collection from one of a small number of writers on the vanguard of American fiction.
