Roaming the rustic through bus and teach, on the cheap and with none institutional aid, Linh Dinh got down to rfile, in phrases and photographs, what existence is like for individuals. From l. a., Cheyenne, Portland, and New Orleans, to Jackson and Wolf Point--Linh walked miles and miles via unusual neighborhoods, chatting with whoever could consult him: the homeless residing in tent towns, the peddlers, the protestors, the general public preachers, the prostitutes. With the uncompromising eye of a Walker Evans or a Dorothea Lange, and the indomitable, forthright prose of a modern day Nelson Algren or James Agee, Dinh files the appalling and the absurd with heat and honesty, giving voice to America's frequently forgotten electorate and championing the amazing power it takes to outlive for these at the bottom. 

Growing out of a photograph and political writing weblog Linh has maintained when you consider that 2009, Postcards from the top of America is an unflinching diary of what Linh sees because the accelerating cave in of the United States. monitoring the commercial, political, and social unraveling--from the casinos to the deserted factories and over all of the sidewalks in between--with a poet's incisive tongue, Linh indicates us the uncanny energy of the folk within the face of societal devastation.
