from “Game of Exiled Bondage”


She, Self-Winding is a collection of poems that explores, through slanted narrative và shrewd linguistic play, the trajectory of an immigrant girl from a remote village who endures the aftermath of a civil war as she makes her escape by boat, leaves behind a home country, copes with domestic violence & abuse as a teenager, and grows up in a democratic Western society as a woman forming her own social và sexual paradigms, all in times of incredulity.

Praise for Previous Work

Luu Dieu Van’s poems are interesting because of her skillful và exquisite usage of imagery. In fact, it’s a tour de force. In almost every single poem, one could find an intriguing effect created by the peculiar choice of words that she inserts at the right place và the right time.

Trinh Y Thu, author of The Ruins of Mirages

Luu Dieu Van’s poetry has a strong emphasis on diction, it employs a language which addresses the public. Her poetry is not for the page alone, it is also for the tongue, for the performance stage. It is a spoken voice, the audience will hear the wit of the words, the exuberance of the vernacular & the energy of the speech.

Rich in theme, with a brave và lively selection of imagery, Van excels at incisive observation—at times tragic, và more often than not, very funny.
