Marty Allen, veteran news reporter, is given the most challenging assignment of his career: determine if iconic movie actress Marilyn Monroe machine-gunned down seven bikers in 1961. At the same time, he wants to know why his girlfriend, a hard-nosed police detective, left him for a cop who abuses women and breaks legs, a quest that will nearly cost him his life. According to a tipster, the bikers almost assaulted Monroe while she was strolling along the beach in Hollywood, Florida. But four mafia soldiers, secretly providing her protection at the behest of their boss, rescued her. They were about to blow away the would-be attackers in a warehouse – until Monroe, seeking retaliation, asked to do the honors. Lending a modicum of credibility to this account, the tipster asserts that it happened shortly after Monroe was released from a psychiatric hospital. Marty, who works for a news and entertainment magazine, doesn’t buy any of it initially. Yet he digs deep to learn about Monroe’s difficult life and her controversial death at a young age. He discovers her alleged incident is remarkably similar to the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, where mobsters blasted away seven men in a Chicago garage in the 1920s. He examines Monroe’s ties to a mafia kingpin. And he even tracks down the Tommy Gun she supposedly used and verifies it’s the same model involved in the earlier Chicago mob hit. Ultimately, Marty will find the shocking truth behind the tipster’s claim the actress was a mass murdererer.

'For a novel that has so few pretensions, this is a skilfully constructed story that manages to be insightful, understated and very funny simultaneously' - Sydney Morning Herald 'William McInnes is insightful, thoughtful and funny. He has a flair for fiction as much as memoirs and non-fiction, as The Laughing Clowns will attest' - The Daily Telegraph

Linh Dinh is already one of the secret masters of short fiction. Love Like Hate is something like a traditional cross-cultural novel that's been shocked into life by Dinh's uncanny ability to tell us stories we didn't even know we wanted to hear. -- Ed Park, editor of The Believer In Love Like Hate, Linh Dinh weaves a dysfunctional family saga that doubles as a portrait of Vietnam in the last half century. Protagonists Kim Lan and Hoang Long marry in Saigon during the Vietnam War, uniting in a setting that allows Dinh's dark, deadpan humor to flourish. Describing his mushrooming cast of characters in unsentimental and sometimes absurd ways, Dinh embraces contradictions with the surreal exuberance of Matthew Sharpe and the stylistic élan of Italo Calvino.

Carefully selected and represented, the plays in this collection showcase both the fantastic and the realistic innovations of Korean dramatists during a time of rapid social and historical change. Stretching from 1962 to 2004, these seven works tackle major subjects, such as the close of the Choson dynasty and the aftermath of the Korean War, while delving into trenchant cultural issues, such as the marginalization of students who rebel against mainstream education and the role of traditional values in a materialistic society. Longtime scholar of Korea and its vibrant, politically acute theater, Richard Nichols opens with a general overview of modern Korean drama since 1910 and concludes with an appendix describing theater production and audience attendance in Seoul. He chooses works that aren't just for Korean audiences. These texts confront universal themes and situations, tackling the problem of ambition, the trouble with fidelity, and the complexity of sexual and interpersonal relationships. Nichols situates each work critically, historically, and culturally, including brief biographies of playwrights and extensive notes. A bibliography also provides alternative readings and the titles of additional plays currently available in English. Primed for production, these skillful translations provide Western directors with exciting new material for the stage. At the same time, they offer students and scholars a sophisticated survey of the modern Korean dramatic tradition.
