The Frangipani Hotel Tells Original Vietnamese Ghost Stories

The Frangipani Hotel is a collection of short “ghost” stories by Kupersmith, inspired by her Vietnamese-American heritage.

If the resulting stories depart from Vietnamese folklore, it is surely because Kupersmith is at least as much a product of America as Vietnam (and more individual than either American or Vietnamese).  And America takes a very big role in the stories.  Many take place in America (especially Houston).  Even the stories in Vietnam may feature an American.  The stories, then, are a product of a fusion of culture as well as lore.  They are also, as a well, strongly written.

I received a free copy of The Frangipani Hotel through NetGalley.
