MARIA MCLEOD is a poet, freelance writer and documentarian.
In his first collection of short stories, Fake House, author Linh Dinh explores and exposes the politics of identity, carving a window into a landscape where borders not only divide the geography, but also define ones relationship to the world, to others, and ultimately, to ones self.
I have stolen the heart out of your chest. It beat on my bed for days, where I let it run itself out. It wasnt red, but brown, turning deeper so as it lay and rot.
