  50. unpostmodern
    • 2008 June 8, Hari Kunzru, “Outside Ethnicity”, New York Times:
      It reads as a manifesto of sorts, a way for the author to assert his right to roam outside his ethnicity, and to justify the rest of his collection, which neurotically avoids the “Vietnamese thing,” taking the reader around the world in 80 days, with narrators of all ages and genders, before coming full circle in the title story — 40 pages of entirely unpostmodern realism about boat people suffering as they try to escape the new Communist state.
