Synopsis: Poetry. In PLACING THE ACCENTS, Truong Tran makes a poetry at once gestural and minimal, sparse and rich, of my father's broken english and my vietnamese tongue/discarded resewn. As much as this book is concerned with the powers and failures of language, with the complications of negotiating a cultural netherworld born somewhere between rural Vietnam and urban America, it is also the ancient story of lost innocence and childhood, of a boy and his father, each struggling to find a true home, a true family, a true nation --Gillian Conoley. Truong Tran's wonderful book -- his poems are very much of-a-piece -- is brilliant, disarmingly honest, and deeply insightful. He has performed the marvelous: he has given us a world -- Sam Hamill.
About the Author: Truong Tran is a poet and visual artist. His publications include The Book of Perceptions, Placing The Accents, dust and conscience (awarded the San Francisco Poetry Center Book Prize), within the margin, and Four Letter Words. Truong lives in San Francisco where he is currently teaching poetry at SFSU and Mills College.
